Excerpt from course description

Business Law


The course gives the students an introduction to central business law topics and an overview of legal frameworks in business and industry. The students get an overview of the most important legal regulations for a business to be able to operate in a market, as well as an introduction to how the rules should be interpreted.


The course provides basic knowledge of ownership forms and corporate responsibility (including employer responsibility), as well as knowledge of contract law regulations. This entails, among other things, learning about how businesses are started, operated, developed and changed in line with needs, legal frameworks and expectations in society. The course is therefore central to understanding how businesses should be able to collaborate in different contexts and across disciplines.


The course emphasizes that the students should be able to use legal competence on practical issues that they can face in working life. Companies with good knowledge of business law will therefore have a great competitive advantage.


The course is adapted to all studies at BI Norwegian Business School.
