The content of the examination corresponds with course offerings such as Introduction to Business Law or Business Law I. This examination measures knowledge and understanding of business law in pursuit of organizational goals and strategies. It specifically tests for a familiarity with the key legal issues and terms related to business law as well as for an application of the legal tools needed to deal with real world legal/business issues within the US legal environment. The examination measures the ability to understand sources of law, dispute resolution, business ethics, criminal law as it relates to business, tort law, contracts, agency law, the various types of business organizations, and matters of real and intellectual property under United States law. No prior knowledge of business law is required for this examination. (Multiple-choice examination)
