If you want a career that combines money and power, there are few better paths than corporate law. And whether you plan on going to business school or law school, or just want to understand how the business world really works, an online Business Law course is a great place to start.
Begin with the basics: the Constitution and various schools of jurisprudence. Then you’ll leverage that understanding to compare and contrast ethics, values, morality, law, and the need for promoting corporate social responsibility. Next, you’ll learn about tort law, personal and property rights, negligence and liability. From there, it’s time to get into contracts: consent, consideration, fair and unfair contracts, how to create them, how to revoke them, the laws and public policy that govern them and the legal rights of all parties across a wide variety of situations.
* A 3-credit StraighterLine course is estimated to require approximately 75 hours of study time. Dedicating 17-20 hours per week should allow a student to finish within a single month subscription. That estimate is not guaranteed, and individual experience may differ. Prices do not include books.
