Asper Chair

Welcome to the Asper Chair of International Business and Trade Law

In 1999, the Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba established the Asper Chair of International Business and Trade Law. The Asper Chair sponsors a variety of research including academic conferences in international business and trade law. An internship program allows up to four students a year to work with the Asper Chair and creates opportunities for students to advance their education, while gaining skills necessary to pursue careers in law or business with an international focus. Additionally, students involved in the Asper program have the opportunity to participate in international commercial dispute resolution competitions.
