Business Law 

Business Law classes at UNCW provide Business Students with an important overview of the law and its impact on business and business careers.  Students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

In addition to learning how the law impacts personal lives, students learn how the legal system impacts business activities.  Students learn how the legal system works to maintain order, resolve disputes, establish accepted standards, and protect rights and liberties. 

A basic understanding of Business Law helps students spot potential legal issues as they come up, make better decisions, and know when to seek legal help.  Ethics and ethical decision-making strategies are examined throughout all the Business Law classes.
