The Hyman Soloway Chair in Business and Trade Law promotes teaching and research in business and international economic law at the University of Ottawa. It provides students, professors, graduates and the international law community with the opportunity to participate and to learn from countless experts in the field.
In this video, current chairholder Wolfgang Alschner explains how the Chair acts as a focal point for the development of trade law expertise in Canada’s capital, while explaining why it is now more important than ever to advance knowledge and expertise on the subject of international trade.
The Hyman Soloway Chair is an endowed chair at the Faculty of Law, named after the principal donor, the late Mr. Hyman Soloway, Q.C., formerly the long time senior partner in the law firm of Soloway Wright. Mr. Soloway began his long and distinguished legal career in 1945 after his discharge from the army. He was a recognized expert in corporate and commercial law and was on the board of a number of major Canadian corporations.
