This Business Law Specialist Program is designed to introduce students to all business law concepts from their roots in common law through to elements of American and international law that make up this area of robust jurisprudence. Businesses operate every day under accepted theories of contract and tort law, promoting equitable transactions and ensuring corporate responsibility that advance accepted notions of good business practices. Corporations are also subject to various statutory frameworks that dictate the treatment and conditions of employees, ensure environmental protection and protect consumers from powerful organizations when necessary. Throughout this program, students will explore all of these issues and learn how the law applies to business operations every day.
The Business Law Specialist program will provide students with a survey of the principle areas of business law. It will explore the relationship between business and the law with respect to the following topics: torts, crimes, intellectual property, contracts, negotiable instruments, agency, employment, and forms of business organization. Students will also explore the relationship between business and the law with respect to ethics and social responsibility, government regulation, personal property, real property, and international trade. Students will gain a working knowledge of practical rules of law and legal terminology, as well as legal solutions for business-related issues.
