Contracts law, intellectual property law, unfair trade practices, limited liability – all of these fall under the “business law” umbrella.
Business law is a broad and highly diverse field, with different sets of laws that apply depending on the type of business or industry. Every business owner needs to know how to navigate the legal landscape--and who to contact when legal guidance is necessary. That may be you someday.
Designed specifically for associates, new attorneys, and attorneys who do not practice business law (experienced business lawyers will benefit, too!), this program offers a streamlined overview of key concepts necessary to establish a strong foundation in this practice area.
Business law is an integral aspect of any legal system as it governs and regulates the business environment. By attending this program, you are taking the first step in helping your clients run their businesses in an effective and legal manner.
