Business Law for Managers
- Course Overview
Managers and professionals in business make decisions of a legal nature every day, yet do not always understand or have access to current knowledge in Business Law.
They are constantly required to enter into formal and informal agreements and transactions in a wide range of business situations, with legal implications, such as fines and penalties, for both their organisation and themselves. Indeed, there is an increasing trend in the law to make managers personally liable for breaches of the law by their organisation.
To lead responsibly then, modern managers must not only be aware of the importance of minimising legal risk, but make it a normal and high-priority part of their approach to their duties. This program will help you do it.
