This course provides students with a basic understanding of how the law and the political process affect business strategy and decision making. It is co-taught by faculty from the Departments of Legal Studies & Business Ethics and Business & Public Policy. Topics include how legal infrastructure (contracts, intellectual property, antitrust, etc.) affect business strategy, and how businesses deal with challenges involving government agencies, legislation, or the press. The course presents broadly applicable frameworks that will help students to manage and advise clients more effectively in a world heavily influenced by legal concerns and governmental forces.
