The Role and Function of Law in Global Business
Law impacts how business operations perform. With globalization, the law’s impact and corresponding business risks have grown. The student will learn to consider how and when a business risk should be pursued under traditional litigation (lawsuit, answer, and discovery) and where alternative dispute resolution methods are appropriate in both domestic and international disputes.
