Business law research is the analysis, search process, information evaluation, and reasoning necessary to ethically solve business law problems and advise clients on corporate or transactional law matters. In this course, you will learn how to research as if you were a business lawyer, which includes research such as: (1) corporate compliance, formation, and organization laws and regulations; (2) transactional laws related to mergers and acquisitions; and (3) due diligence and company analyses. The purpose of this course is to broaden your knowledge of the methods, databases, sources, and primary materials that you will encounter when conducting business law research; and to increase your familiarity with common business law terminology and the research requests that typically accompany that knowledge.
