Mindestanforderungen:

Rudimentary economic understanding (e.g., a basic grasp of the Law of Supply and Demand) is helpful, but our discussion will largely be confined to law rather than to economics.  As a result, no special expertise in business, commerce, or economic theory is required. The same applies to business or corporate experience.


Literatur:

Any materials put at your disposal should be read in order to enhance discussions in class.
