  • Welcome to Business Law

    Business Law is designed to teach students about how law affects business and personal life. It is a great class for students who want to pursue careers in law, law enforcement, politics, civil service or business, or for anyone who is interested in how our system of laws works.

    We will study:

    • Legal basics (foundation, evolution and ethics)
    • The role of the Constitution and government
    • Criminal law
    • Civil law/torts
    • Contracts
    • Real, personal and Intellectual property
    • Domestic/Personal Law


    Students will research cases and explore the law through cinema. We will also discuss and practice soft skills related to professionalism and employability. This course is an excellent introduction to the law. Click below to see the course syllabus, which includes South Carolina course standards.
