Professor Samuel D. Hodge, Jr.
The legal system affects each of us on a daily basis. Educated citizens, no matter what career path they may choose, should be aware of the ways in which the law impacts their lives in a personal and business setting. This course will introduce students to the essential aspects of law with an emphasis on the legal environment of business and government regulations. Students will learn the basics of contract, tort, property, and administrative law as well as international, corporate and employment law. For instance, the Legal Environment of Business will include a discussion of the types of legal entities one can form to run a business, as well as employer and employee relations. The political, social and economic forces that affect change are also discussed thereby providing guidance as to the future direction of the law in both the United States and around the world. This is also the required business law course in the Fox School of Business and Management.
