Business Law

It is useful for business owners, managers, and other professionals to have a basic understanding of business law to help them make better decisions. Laws apply to people and to business. Businesses need these laws for the same reasons that people do: to define acceptable behaviour, provide certainty and stability, protect the public, and provide a mechanism for businesses to resolve disputes. This minor introduces students to how laws are identified and classified in New Zealand.
