Business Strategy (Law)

Business Strategy Strategy is the set of objectives, policies and resource commitments that collectively determine how a business positions itself to create wealth for its owners. This course introduces students to principles and conceptual frameworks for evaluating and formulating business strategy. Topics include the boundaries of the firm, the analysis of industry economics, strategic positioning and competitive advantage, and the role of resources and capabilities in shaping and sustaining competitive advantages. Law students will gain insight into clients’ business models and strategies as well as the operation of markets in which transactions and disputes occur. This class will meet on the Fall Quarter schedule: In Fall 2017, the first meeting will be the week of September 18. Students may drop the class by Friday, September 22, but should know that they will not be able to add another law school class at that time (because regular drop/add will have closed). JDMBA students are not permitted to take this class at the law school, but must take it in their 2J year at Kellogg. Evaluation: Final Examination, group and individual assignments, and class participation. Section 1 is designated for JD students only. Section 2 is designated for LLM students only. Both sections of the course will meet in MC195
