As areas of law often overlap, the following topics may be briefly touched upon: criminal law, marketplace legislation, commercial law, purchase and sales of businesses, and trust law. Time permitting, the course will cover the basic forms of business organization and the pros and cons of these different structures. Studying the law requires independent thinking and critical analysis to identify potential risk situations and legal problems in a business situation. Students must be able to communicate thoughtful analysis and the application of legal principles where a clear right and wrong answer to the situation may not be applicable. Required Textbook
