Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

The prerequisites are:
- The course is a possible choice within the students program
- The student has achieved at least 80 credits within this program.

The course is a mandatory part of the Chalmers School of Entrepreneurships 60 credits Master program

Aim

The course aims at giving a comprehensive, but not total, description of the system designed to create norms that exists in society and the norms this system creates. The course shall furthermore give quite extensive knowledge about the laws that is central for businesses that is technology based, especially contract-, trade-, company-, market- and intellectual property law.
The goal is thereby not to teach the student to become a lawyer. The idea is instead to give an overview of the lawyers tools and, at the same time, give the student enough knowledge to be able to solve simpler problems within specific sectors and to understand when it is time to consult a professional lawyer.

Content

The course consists of two parts (3 and 2 credits respective) to be read in one context. Part 1 corresponds totally with Business law 1 (3 credits) which is a mandatory part of the master programme in Industrial engineering and Management.

Part 1 consist of the following elements:

* The norm system
* Law on contracts incl. standardized contracts
* Trade law
* Law on credit
* Law on property
* Company law
* Insolvency law

Part 2 deals with the vast field of market regulations and consists of the following parts:

* Market law incl. consumer law
* Intellectual property law

The main teaching consists of a series of lectures during which the most difficult/important parts will be thoroughly examined. The lectures are followed by seminars in which the more practical handling of problems will be discussed. These seminars are to be prepared/solved in advance in small groups consisting of 3 - 5 students. Each group shall, at every single seminar, be prepared to present reasonable solutions to the presented problems. These seminars are a part of the examination and require that the students not only are present but also an active participation from each and everyone. It shall be noted the structure of the legal system is such that we don t really care if the groups have found the right answer. Instead we focus on the way they have reached the solution. Presence at the seminars is mandatory. The course manager can give exemption from this demand. Such exemption can be combined with med specific terms such as handing in papers.

Literature

Examination
