This course aims at developing understanding of business law environment where conducting a well-designed and steadily growing business requires a few elements to be constantly taken into consideration – law is one of them, especially taken from the European and international perspective.
At the end of the lecture, students should be equipped with knowledge and the relevant tools to understand business setting, to plan adequate strategy, to predict and assess possible consequences of any strategic adjustments – all these from a legal point of view.
The knowledge should encompass a wide array of aspects including not only explicit legal issues such as legal forms of doing business or elements of contract law but the focus will also be on equally important aspects such as: managing intellectual property in the organization; taking care of its competitive advantage; risks of white collar crime while running a business and current requirements in the field of sustainable development.
Based on the above, students will be able to implement their understanding of the organizations as well as variety of business law rules to the changing business environment they plan to operate in, with the most appropriate manner that supports ethical business co- operation with the safeguard of the core of the business itself as well.
