The Role of Law in Business: An Entrepreneur’s Guide


INSTRUCTOR: Michelle Romero


SCHEDULE: Tuesday 6:25PM – 9:05PM

Course Description

This course will prepare you for entrepreneurship and business management. You will be introduced to the rules of law that govern the many aspects of business. The legal system and business policies and practices in the United States are closely related. Few aspects on how to manage a business can be accomplished without understanding various legal requirements. A basic understanding of these rules and the constraints that impact business provides a framework for making sound business decisions, facilitates commercial transactions and promotes order in the marketplace. We will cover the legal nuts and bolts of starting a business, buying or selling one and everything in between.

Students will learn to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of business law pertinent to entrepreneurship and management
  • Identify issues and address potential challenges before they could become actual, expensive problems
  • Communicate effectively and persuasively in oral presentations and written documents
  • Demonstrate analytical problem-solving skills and critical thinking
  • Make confident and informed business decisions
