Online Minor in Business Law

Get a Minor in Business Law!

An 18-hour minor in business law is now available to distance students. The Business Administration and Law Program has developed an online minor that can be completed by taking one business law (LAW) course per semester over a two-year period. Courses are developed and taught by faculty with the needs of diverse majors in mind. Legal knowledge can enhance any major and provide a professional edge in any field.

Moreover, four of the required offerings are liberal studies courses:

  • P1 Upper Level - Social Science - 406 Media Law
  • P4 Upper Level - Humanities - LAW 306 Women and the Law
  • P4 Upper Level - Humanities - LAW 412 Business Ethics and Corporate Responsibility
  • P4 Upper Level - Humanities - LAW 201 Individual Rights.

This allows students to meet liberal studies requirements while completing the minor.  

The two-year rotation begins summer 2010 with LAW 306 Women and the Law, a look at discriminatory practices and gender. In the fall, LAW 230 The Legal and Ethical Environment of Business will be offered and will provide students with a broad overview of the law that impacts profit and non-profit businesses.

The two-year rotation is as follows:

  • Summer - LAW 306 - Women and the Law
  • Fall - LAW 230 - The Legal and Ethical Environment of Business
  • Spring - LAW 412 - Business Ethics and Corporate Responsibility
  • Summer - LAW 406 - Media Law
  • Fall - LAW 201 - Individual Rights
  • Spring - LAW 331 - Contracts and Sales

If a particular class on the rotation is not offered a given semester, appropriate alternatives will be available.

We hope you will be able to take advantage of this unique opportunity. The Business Administration and Law Program is the only one of its kind in the North Carolina University system.
