Dr. Pat Robertson Addresses Business Law Society on Changing Economy


Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson was the guest of honor at the April meeting of the Business Law Transactions Society (BLTS).

Against the backdrop of large companies such as GM moving toward bankruptcy, Dr. Robertson addressed the business-minded students on smart financing and key strategies in advising corporations in financial crisis.

Dr. Robertson spoke about his past experiences as a preferred shareholder and the steps he’s had to take to direct companies in financial difficulty, including toward Chapter 7 bankruptcy when appropriate.

In his closing remarks he encouraged the students who are facing a difficult job market. “If you’re skilled in your craft, there will be a place for you,” he said. “Study hard and pay attention to the larger picture of what’s happening in the changing economy; it will contextualize the law for you and bring the most success.”

A successful businessman and entrepreneur, Dr. Robertson is founder and chair of The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) Inc., and founder of International Family Entertainment Inc., Regent University, Operation Blessing International Relief and Development Corporation, American Center for Law and Justice, The Flying Hospital, Inc. and several other organizations and broadcast entities.
