Introduction to Business Law (8 Weeks) (IBL101)
This introductory course provides business professionals from all backgrounds with a solid grounding in the fundamentals of universal commercial law principles applicable to all major jurisdictions. Students will be furnished with the basic tools to tackle more advanced areas of business law that they may meet later on in whatever jurisdiction or line of business they find themselves working in. This vast but fascinating and practical area of law, the product of centuries of human ingenuity and the expansion of global trade, will be livened up with plenty of illuminating cases from two common law jurisdictions (England and the USA) and one civil jurisdiction (Japan).
