Course Descriptions - Legal Studies

LSB 327 BUSINESS LAW and ethics

A working knowledge of business law is important to every member of society, as the law applies to us all --- from individuals to organizations. This course is a broad introduction to U.S. law, concentrating on basic knowledge of the legal system and its impacts on commerce. Business Law begins with an overview of the judicial system and alternative dispute resolution. After a brief look at criminal law and civil liability, we focus on contracts, the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), business formation, agency relationships and intellectual property. This course will also introduce students to ethical constructs and ethics-based decision making. Formerly LSB 227 – Business Law.
