This course is taught by a group of lawyers practicing in business-related areas. These fields include the corporate law, real estate, tax, business litigation, many areas of government regulation, and aspects of nonprofit representation. Each student will be carefully guided by our academic staff towards acquiring such skills in the critical three areas. These will be basic analytics (accounting, finance, economics), an appreciation of transactions, and relevant fields of law. Most courses at the LU fall in the latter area and a major benefit of all such courses is that they indirectly showcase the basic, connected principles in the former two areas. For example, a course in Antitrust Law will improve and an overall understanding of mergers and acquisitions, vertical distribution arrangements, and a multitude of other free market interactions. Most of what follows concerns courses in business law per se. Regarding basic analytics, it is very useful to take Analytical Methods for Lawyers (especially if your background knowledge in economics and finance is not strong) and/or courses at LU or at other schools in Accounting, Finance, and Economics.
