Description

When most people think about business, the relationship between business and the law may not be the first consideration that comes to mind. Bus the law has a major impact on the operation of a successful business. For example, businesses face a range of government legal regulations, from laws preventing employment discrimination to rules requiring efforts to protect the environment. In addition, businesses must make important legal decisions from their founding, such as which organizational form they will take, how they will conduct their daily operations (such as making contracts and protecting consumers), and how their potential liquidation will be handled. Both business administrators and business-law paralegals must familiarize themselves with the range of laws surrounding business as well as the range of operational practices that businesses must implement in order to address the legal challenges of running a company.This course will introduce you to the legal knowledge and skills that business administrators and paralegals must possess. First, you will explore the basics of the American legal system and examine the specific areas of business practice that the law impacts and regulates – such as torts, contracts, and criminal action. Then, you will practice important skills related to these areas, such as learning how to draft basic legal documents, make registrations and other filings, and communicate legal and regulatory requirements to company executives and employees. By the time you have completed this course, you will understand the key legal aspects of operating a business, as well as the foundational skills that certain employees must possess in order to address the legal and regulatory issues that are faced by today’s businesses and companies.
