Business Law

Understanding laws governing businesses is important in all jurisdictions in the world, especially for businesses themselves seeking to minimize taxes and penalties all the while maximizing their use of government incentives. Settings different economic schools of thought aside, it is clearly evident that the business environments of different countries (developed nations in particular) have become increasingly complex. In most cases, government regulatory bodies as well as private sector standards organizations, among others, are involved in all steps of business operation. From setting up a company to labor code implementation, from accounting and taxes to product quality standards and consumer protection, business law is there and professionals holding a Master in Business law are necessary. As such, businesses are always in need of individuals specializing in compliance work.

Majority of law students have first encountered business law as a subject in law school. As the intricate web of laws governing businesses become more and more entangled, a Master in Business Law is essential to lawyers seeking to work in corporate settings. Familiarizing oneself with business law does not stop in law school; new laws are repealed and enacted on a regular basis, and the conscientious business lawyer need to arm himself with the knowledge of these changes and how these interact with existing laws. More so, business lawyers would also have to familiarize themselves with the laws of other jurisdictions and international laws that affect how businesses work in order to remain relevant in the globalized world economy. This makes business law one of the most challenging, albeit rewarding, specializations in law.
