Course Description

It is not a businessman's job to deal with the law, but it is part of his job to deal with legal problems — and sometimes decide on how to solve them, with or without the support of professional legal counsels. Even with such support, any individual involved in economics and business needs to feel comfortable with certain legal concepts to understand the lawyers' language and make the right decisions. From negotiating corporate transactions to supply agreements, from understanding corporate regulations to spotting key points in a company's bylaws, students will be faced with certain legal issues and choices in their professional lives. This class aims at giving them practical tools to understand and deal with legal aspects of doing business.
