Business Law

 

image

From start-up to merger, idea to initial public offering, acquisition to sale, legal issues punctuate the life of a business. A business simply cannot function without the direction and confidence supplied by the laws that regulate business and commerce. Lewis & Clark recognizes the importance of this field of study and provides an innovative and comprehensive program in business and commercial law.

The Study of Business Law

Our program allows students to focus on individual interests, as well as explore a full array of topics. The rich and varied curriculum includes not only traditional subject areas, such as business associations, income tax, and commercial law, but also newer ones, such as cyberlaw and telecommunications law, that challenge us to adapt legal rules to fast-changing technologies.

We offer a wide array of electives which encourage students to mix practice and theory. Importantly, our offerings also include a full selection of practical skills opportunities and transactional courses that simulate the types of transactions business lawyers encounter in their practices.

Certificate Programs

We offer certificates in general business law, intellectual property law, and federal tax law. Certificates are intended to recognize students for their achievements and to inform prospective employers that these students have completed a rigorous course of study in the subject area.
