The Marcel A. Desautels Centre

The mandate of The Marcel A. Desautels Centre for Private Enterprise and the Law is to integrate the disciplines of law, business and the humanities as they apply to family-controlled and other private enterprises, the principal foundation of all economic activity in Canada.

  • Marcel A. Desautels Centre for Private Enterprise and the Law Logo
  • The focus on private enterprise, rather than public corporations, and a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding business people, as well as their businesses, makes the Centre unique for a Canadian law school.

    Through the Centre’s academic programs, students are trained, develop the necessary skills, and acquire relevant perspectives to address, in a holistic manner, issues faced by these enterprises and their owners at all stages of the private business life cycle, from conception through growth and development, to maturity, succession and disposition.

    The Centre also promotes research in these multi-faceted and complex issues, provides service to the business community through the L. Kerry Vickar Business Law Clinic, supports specialized graduate education, and serves as a resource to members of the legal profession.


Law lectures are crucial for fostering public awareness and understanding of legal issues, helping to bridge the gap between legal complexities and everyday life.
