Business - Inception to day?to?day operations, from legal perspective



This semester you are going to lay the groundwork for starting a new business. The primary goal of these assignments is to walk you through many of the considerations a new business owner faces, from inception to day?to?day operations, from a legal perspective.

The Project will involve multiple assignments considering various aspects of your business from a legal perspective. You will first select a business you are starting and use that same new start-up business as the basis of all three (3) assignments.


There are three (3) assignments making up the entire Project. Each Assignment, prepared at different times throughout the semester, is meant to require you to think strategically, from a legal perspective, about particular issues facing businesses, as discussed in the textbook.

Each assignment also gives you an opportunity to learn how to conduct an appropriate risk analysis within the context of a particular industry


     The point of this project is to illustrate how essential it is to conduct business from a place of full information, as much as possible.

Your grade will be a function of your ability

1-to distill the facts surrounding your business and industry which requires you to carefully select the new business, to research the business and the industry in which it operates,

2-to recognize and analyze the legal issues existing in that environment, and

3-to develop an assessment that identifies and addresses that intersection of business and law.
