Bridging the gap between business and legal knowledge.
Welcome to the website for the Harvard Association for Law and Business (HALB). HALB is the premier student group addressing the business interests of Harvard Law School students. We aim to provide a forum for students to pursue interests in business both within and outside of law, as well as provide numerous networking and recruiting opportunities for various business-related interests.
We believe that top business lawyers and legally-trained business leaders can provide their companies with a critical competitive edge in shaping business strategies with legal strategies, risks and ramifications in mind.
HALB routinely sponsors speaker panels from traditional areas of interest such as management consulting and investment banking, to other areas such as private equity, hedge funds, venture capital and entrepreneurship. In addition, we sponsor top business recruiters in various events designed to reach out to the HLS community. Lastly, HALB organizes regular networking events with other HALB members, HBS students, alumni and other professionals as well as access to HLS alumni working in the business community.
