Thematic Sequence

Please note: you must visit our office in 2053 FSB to register your thematic sequence.

The Finance Department offers one thematic sequence. The Law and Commerce Thematic Sequence provides a survey of legal theory, history and institutions as they relate to American culture, society and business. We focus on providing the student with an understanding of why and how "American Law" developed; how and why it is applied; how and why the law is evolving; and how and why it impacts commerce. Students will use critical thinking skills in applying legal principles to analyze, identify and solve legal problems arising in the everyday life of common business activity. The courses also emphasize in-depth study of legal rules, rationale and application in substantive areas of law and commerce.
