Course Description

This course is an introduction of the relationship between law and the business environment. The material includes an overview of the areas of law that are relevant to business, including torts, crimes, contracts, the Constitution, antitrust, real estate, court procedure, government regulation, intellectual property and remedies. The class also addresses ethical issues that may arise in a business’s internal and external activities. Many of these topics will overlap such as computer crime legislation, liability for errors in data or programming for an IT system, or the ethics of revealing information to gain an advantage in business.
