This class was tough.
This course teaches business law that is actually useful in the everyday world. It is practical knowledge that anyone who takes this course can benefit from knowing the material. It's not an easy course, there is a good amount of homework, but it's totally doable, and it's really interesting. You will definitely feel like you accomplished a worthwhile goal. It also meets the requirements of a transferable course to a four year college. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this course! I truly enjoyed the instructor and the subject matter.
I learned about contract law; valid contracts v. no contract, the difference between sole owner, LLC, LP, LLP, and incorporation. We also studied Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress v. Negligent infliction of Emotional Distress. The course covers defamation of character, liable & slander law. We skimmed over consumer law. I have a much better grasp on how the court systems in the United States operate, and the origins of some of the practices of the U. S. Court system. Many of our rules and regulations governing the U. S. court system come straight from old English practices going back to the 16th century. I found it fascinating how closely related we are to our English cousins! Our forefathers adopted the English court system, and for the most part we still follow that system today.

Advice for students:
Go to the lectures!!!! Don't miss out on the lectures. They are taught by licensed attorneys, and there is always interesting discussion. Also, interact with your fellow students!!! The law is something that can open to interpretation, it is always interesting to hear how someone else's mind interprets the same subject.
