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.

Aim

The course gives extensive knowledge about the laws that are central for technology-based firms, especially contract-, trade-, company-, market- and intellectual property law.
In particular the course should provide the students with a fundamental understanding of the critical role legal instruments (e.g. firms, contracts, IPRs, standards, etc.) play in the commercialization of technological advances.

Content

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

Part 1 deals with the following elements from a technology perspective:

Law on contracts incl. standardized contracts
Trade law
Law on credit
Law on property
Company law
Insolvency law

Part 2 consists of the fundamentals of market law from a technology perspective.

The main teaching consists of a series of lectures during which the most important legal concepts 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 that the goal of the exercises is not to find the right answer per se. Instead we focus on the way they have reached the solution. Presence at the seminars is mandatory.

Organisation

Literature

The course literature to be set at the start of the course.

Examination

The examination is based on a written test and on an active participation in the seminars.
