The Business Law course explains the critical processes and principles of business law in an entrepreneurial venture. The lectures cover legal processes from company formation to intellectual property and each process is defined, explained, and illustrated through easy-to-understand real company examples. The lectures also cover important legal principles such as finding good counselors and unequal yoking. As opposed to the step-by-step process explanations, the principles reveal insights into how to think about business law by defining, explaining, and illustrating how the principles work and how they impact a business. The course includes a business case discussion of a real company struggling with real legal issues.
