Business and Corporate Law

Focused coursework in the business/corporate area is of value to students aiming to work in a law firm representing businesses in transactions or litigation, or to work in an in-house corporate legal department. Course offerings cover subjects specific to corporate law (corporate finance, mergers, securities law) and a variety of legal matters with which businesses must deal (environmental, intellectual property, tax).

All focused course work at UST Law consists of foundational courses that introduce the subject area, upper-level theory and practice courses that provide an academic background necessary for success, and experiential learning courses that provide students with the chance to apply their learning in simulations or outside the classroom.

The Supervised Research and Writing course (independent study), the Mentor Externship program, and the public service requirements can also be used to support focused course work.
