Regulatory/Reporting Environments (BUS 660)
Term: 2013-2014 Academic Year Summer Term
Coverage in this course begins with building understanding of how contracts are formed, the rules of contract law, and remedies the law has created to address harm that may result, when formal contract rules do not apply. Students will learn more about how legal liability arises, the consequences of such liability and how to avoid or mitigate these liabilities. Legal forms of organizations will also be reviewed, along with secured transactions, sales, and warranties. The latter part of the course specializes in evaluating various ethical issues encountered in business and the questions they raise for the individuals involved. It will cover both theory and philosophical notes as well as how they must be applied daily in actual organizations.
