Course Description: A continuation of the study of real property; agency; employment law; corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies; regulation of business; and, comparison of social responsibility and legal aspects of selected issues. Prerequisite: MG260 3:0:3
Educational Philosophy: The class will be taught in a manner similar to standard approaches used in law and business schools. This will provide students an opportunity to discuss a variety of issues surrounding the text and cases, and allow them to examine the multiple dimensions of legal issues. The intended atmosphere of the class is one of openness and the free exchange of ideas and concepts. Students should be prepared to reason their positions thoroughly and support those positions with relevant arguments based on legal concepts presented in the textbook.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Class Assessment: Teaching techniques include, but are not limited to, reading cases and text discussion, discussing legal cases and problems in small group and full-class discussion, and taking two in-class examinations.
Grading: 1. Two, in-class examinations:
Mid-term exam = 20 pts;
Final examination = 30 pts;
2. Legal Case Studies (3) = 30 points total;
3. Class and group participation = 10 pts based on instructor assessment. Factors taken into consideration include frequency of class participation, evidence of preparedness, and an attitude conducive to constructive class discussion.
3. Attendance = perfect attendance 10 pts; one unexcused absence, 5 pts; two unexcused absences, 0 pts. Students with three or more unexcused absences will not receive any attendance points.
Failure to complete a Legal Case Study will result in no points for that assignment. There will be no allowance for make ups.
There is a mid-term examination during the fourth week and a final examination the eight week. Students who miss the mid-term examination during the fourth week must contact the instructor within 48 hours prior to the test if they wish to make up the exam.
The final examination during the eighth week may not be made up unless the student presents extraordinary circumstances which made attendance for the examination impossible.
Late Submission of Course Materials: The instructor inspects that all reading assisnments be completed prior to the class.
If late or absent due to an “excused absence,” prior arrangements must be made with the instructor for submission of class makeup materials.
At the end of the term, any student who has not completed all work and both examinations will receive an incomplete only if a valid reason exists for an incomplete.
“Extra Credit” is not available.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Student conduct: Appropriate student conduct is required at all times. Students engaging in abusive language or behavior directed at any person or even used in an unspecified way will be warned once and dismissed from class upon the occurrence of a second incident. Instructor will also inform the University and the student may be subject to disciplinary action.
