Business Law for Accountants - CLAW2214

Year - 2018

The entire fabric of commerce is woven from a complex legal regime which regulates all commercial activity. The dominant vehicle for this commercial activity is the limited liability company. In their role as business advisors, accountants require a thorough understanding of key aspects of the legal and regulatory frameworks for business and the operation and governance of corporations. The overall aim of this unit is to introduce students to the range of issues likely to be encountered in the contemporary commercial context and the legal implications of such conduct.
