This module is open to all second year undergraduate students, whether on a law or non-law programme.  It is not necessary to have studied law or any law subjects before (if you have not studied law at any level you will be given a short introduction to law and legal studies as part of the module).Business enterprise is an essential part of the financial wellbeing of this country, and businesses impact on everyone, whether as a customer, supplier, creditor, employee, advisor, lawyer, competitor or entrepreneur.  An understanding of the legal position and regulation of business enterprise is therefore important to us all. In this module you will consider the legal forms of business available in England & Wales, and the role that law and legal regulation plays in the formation and running of business; while also examining some areas of law that impact on small businesses (the module does not seek to cover all legal topics that might potentially be of importance to a business person).This module allows you to develop your interest in law, business and entrepreneurship into a deeper and broader understanding of law and legal regulation in this area and to enhance your appreciation of the connections between legal regulation and business activity.
