Commercial law, as opposed to what we think of as business law - law related to the organizational characteristics of a business operation (what is it), focuses on the practical problems that confront any business in its pursuit of the purposes for which it is established (how we do it) - whether that is selling appliances or the latest iThing, or dry cleaning suits or repairing air conditioners. Of course, Target and Amazon confront the same problems, but there are more small businesses selling and servicing our needs than there are Targets and Amazons. The Commercial Law Track prepares students once in practice to identify the problems inherent in the conduct of commercial life as we know it and to develop the legal strategies necessary to prevent or confront those problems.
