This course is designed to introduce you to the Canadian legal system and related common issues that arise in business. Supported by a business law textbook and supplemental readings, students will be guided through discussions on various legal topics and the implications these topics may have on business, managers, and decision makers to determine when legal advice is necessary.
In introducing the Canadian legal system, a basic overview of topics such as common and civil law, the Canadian Constitution, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, court systems, dispute resolution procedures, administrative law, contract law, and forms of business organizations will be provided.
This course has only one required non-textbook reading and one supplementary reading.
