The purpose of this course is to help those working in complicated technologically intense businesses, and especially those involved in technology management, to understand and to function within that legal environment. To this end, we will look at the nature of the legal system as well as its institutions generally, and will also look at selected areas of law vital to the functioning of Canadian business. The course will also relate law to modern business practice, especially in the field of ethics.
