A major goal of this course is to help students develop the ability to identify situations where legal issues could arise so that they can make informed decisions and effectively manage risk in the business world. To develop this â€œissue spottingâ€ skill, students must maintain a mindset of legal awareness. This requires students to think about concepts studied in the course outside of the classroom. For that reason, each student will be required to find one article online that relates to a topic we study in this course. The articles should expand on a topic discussed in class and provide a useful lesson, tips, or guidelines that would contribute to the classâ€™ understanding of a particular topic. You can use any reliable online source for your article. You can use news websites such as cnn.com or wsj.com, websites like insidecounsel.com, or even blogs.
Each studentâ€™s post should include the following elements:
- A link to the webpage where your article is located,
- A brief (1-2 sentence) overview of what your article is about,
- A discussion of how the article relates to class, and
- Why you think the article is important or helpful to future managers, entrepreneurs, or others in the business world.
