Business Law

The Business Law minor provides students with practical legal knowledge of substantive business law topics and current legal issues. Students learn the skill sets necessary to identify and manage legal issues encountered within personal and business contexts, including litigation, contract law, employment and human resources, real and personal property law as well as applied critical thinking. The result is a student prepared for career opportunities in management, technology and politics. The minor is also excellent preparation for advanced degrees and for law school.

The minor requires 12 credits taken from the following courses. The courses must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. Students must earn at least 75 percent of all credits required for the minor from FAU. A maximum of 3 credits used for the Business Law minor may count toward other Business major requirements. A minimum of two courses (6 credits) must be exclusive to the minor.

For the Business Law courses, refer to Course Descriptions.
