DESCRIPTION
This course is a survey of the legal concepts that managers and entrepreneurs will be exposed to in public, private, and non-profit enterprises. It is neither a surrogate for a law school course ( as such the course is not open to law or JD/MBA students) nor does it delve into procedural subjects, (e.g. the rules of civil procedure or evidence). Rather, the students will learn the fundamentals of torts (negligence and intentional), agency, product liability, antitrust, contracts, intellectual property, corporate governance and white collar criminal law (e.g. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act). The course content is delivered through lectures, class discussion, study of the case book, and weekly assignments. While 10% of the final grade is determined by the weekly assignments, the remaining portion of the final grade will be assessed in a three-hour, closed book, final essay exam. (There is no formal group work in this class). Other than KPPI 952 and BL 437, there is no other course that delves into the issues that will be covered in BL 435.
