What is business law?

Business law, also called commercial law, is the study and practice of law that pertains to the operations of a business.

Within business law are many different concentrations and specialties. For example, business lawyers and legal experts might specialize in advertising, marketing, human resources, asset acquisition, international trade, and other business-related specialties. Often, they deal with business contracts, copyright and patent issues, intellectual property law, bankruptcy, immigration, labor law, and more.

Here's a detailed Definition of Business Law from the Encylopedia Britannica.

Need an appointment?

If you'd like to set up an appointment with me to talk about your assignments, send me an e-mail. Let me know what the assignment is about, what research you've done thus far, and any other related information.

I will be glad to help you with using the databases, looking for books, brainstorming ideas, citing sources, and related tasks. However, I can't help you write your paper, do your statistics, or complete any of your homework assignments.

For writing help, you can contact the Writing Center. For statistics tutoring, you can contact the Department of Mathematics.

Remember, any of the Reference staff at our library can assist you with the basics of research help, but if you need assistance with psychology specifically, please feel free to let me know!
