The program is designed for students who are interested in developing expertise on the legal and regulatory climate that affects business policies and decisions. Students are given hands-on experience with real cases and courses are taught by attorneys. In addition, students develop essential business skills such as case analysis, critical thinking, and problem-solving. These skills allow students to become well rounded business professionals.
