This course introduces management and law students to the fundamental issues and current best practices in managing legal/ethical compliance and corporate social responsibility. Topics and cases will cover both domestic and international business issues. Special attention is given to preparing law and management students to understand and manage the demands on U.S. and international corporations making complex business decisions on the face of increasing expectations for transparency and accountability. Structured around real-world cases that simulate the challenges of today?s domestic and global markets, the course equips students to manage and integrate the differing perspectives of lawyers and managers. The course uses focused readings in law and management, interactive case-studies, simulations, and class discussions that include presentations by corporate executives. Prior study of Corporations and Professional Responsibility recommended, but not required.
