Topics will include business stages, different business models, variance across industries, current business theories and topics, and business basics. This material will allow lawyers to move beyond basing practice on transactions. For students who will be pursuing opportunities in the private sector, this course will enhance and extend their role in the value creation process.

An emphasis will be placed on current topics and real-life examples.
