2011 SC Journal of International Law
& Business Symposium


Friday, February 25, 2011
8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
USC School of Law Auditorium

The South Carolina Journal of International Law & Business invites you to attend our 2011 Symposium, South Carolina’s Job Search: A Look at Business Incentive Programs on Friday, February 25, 2011.

South Carolina was recently chosen as the home for several major corporation sites, including the new Boeing plant in Charleston, the Adidas Distribution Center in Spartanburg, and the new Amazon facility in Lexington. South Carolina also continues to house the nation’s first and only BMW Production Center.

The recent influx of major corporations has drawn significant attention to South Carolina and earned it the honor of being ranked the #1 state in the country for economic growth potential in 2010 by Business Facilities.

As a result, business incentive programs and the correlating legal issues are especially pertinent to the South Carolina legal community right now. Our goal for the 2011 Symposium is to contribute to the scholarly discussion of incentive programs and their place in a delicate business climate, and we invite you to be a part of this exciting event.
