Advanced Business Law Seminar

This course provides students with an introduction to current academic research on a range of business law topics. In this way, students learn how the concepts they have studied in traditional business law courses are used to understand, predict, and shape developments in business law. Students read seven or eight works-in-progress by leading academics at law schools and business schools throughout the country, and then they attend class sessions (that serve as workshop sessions) in which the authors present and discuss their works. Students must write a short paper (three-to-five pages) analyzing each of the works presented, and they are expected to participate actively in all discussions. In addition, students may elect to write a research paper (including one that may be used to satisfy the upper-class writing requirement), for which they will receive an additional credit (for a total of three credits).
