The course is intended to allow law students to understand business from an overview level. Topics will include business basics, corporate evolution, different business models, variance across industries and current business theories and topics. This material will allow legal practitioners to move beyond basing practice on transactions. In the event of pursuing opportunities in the private sector, this will enhance and extend their role in the value creation process and for those pursuing careers in judiciary, regulation or enforcement, outcomes should be more easily reached with better results.
Real-time attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped.
