Understanding the principles of business law is a must for every entrepreneur. This course will first discuss the fundamentals of business law. It will then cover and define the different types of business ownership such as sole proprietorships, general partnerships, limited partnerships, and incorporations. In a step by step manner, you will be guided through the legal requirements, legal recommendations, financial status, taxation, and liability related to the most common types of businesses.

You will then learn important business law principles for the simplest type of business ownership, a sole proprietorship, and look into a general partnership which is a business owned by two or more persons. You will also understand why both business types provide no protection against liability to the owner of the business. Finally, you will study the laws that encompass a corporation, in which the owners are the shareholders and are not liable for debts.
