Course Description:
This course will give MLS students (and select LLM students) ample opportunities to apply the legal knowledge they’ve obtained in their time at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law to a multitude of business scenarios and situations. Furthermore, class discussions will also cover effective and efficient use of attorneys, both internal to a firm and at external law firms. Various substantive topics will be covered in this survey course, with a focus on applying the basic legal principles covered via court decisions and other reading assignments. A basic understanding of “black letter law” will be important, but this is not a course that will ask MLS students to provide the same level of nuanced legal analysis as would be asked of law students. Instead, merging business acumen and legal analysis will be valued above a depth of legal understanding.
