BUSINESS LAW 301 Legal Foundations of the Canadian Economy Winter 2011 Instructor: Jeffrey Bone Office: 2-33 Office Hours: Monday 3: 00 – 4:30 pm Do not hesitate to come and see me during office hours, or you can email your questions to: [email protected] . However, please remember to consult the course syllabus and uLearn first, as it is my experience that some students send emails before reviewing these sources which contains extensive information on course materials and expectations. I am very happy to receive questions on legal topics outside of the course materials that have captured your attention for other reasons. “So much of the time we are just lost. We think, what is right? What is true? There is no justice. The rich win, the poor are powerless, we become tired of hearing people lie, and after a time we become dead, we think of ourselves as victims, and we become victims. We become weak… We doubt ourselves, we doubt our beliefs, we doubt our institutions and we doubt the law. The law is not some book, not lawyers, not marble statutes or the trappings of the court; those are just symbols of our desire to be just. They are in fact a prayer, a frightened prayer. In my religion, they say act as if you have faith, and faith well be given to you. If we are to have faith in justice, we need only to believe in ourselves and act with justice. See I believe there is justice in our hearts.” The Verdict C OURSE D ESCRIPTION This course requires students to recognize and analyze legal principles and processes in our local community and more particularly in the Canadian business environment. The primary topics are: the legal system – courts, civil litigation, and Constitutional issues; applicable tort and contract principles, property law; business and non-profit entities. Additional topics touched upon may include criminal law, corporate social responsibility; commercial law; purchase and sales of businesses; and trust law.
