Business Law

Postby john1990 » Mon Dec 30, 2013 1:18 am

Is it important to attend a top tier school if I want to do Business Law? I do not want to do corporate because the hours are crazy. Id rather work 40 hours a week

it's important to attend a top tier school if you want a legal job of any kind working anywhere for any amount of time.

Its an umbrella term for business law transactions which don't apply to the corporate structure. A range of practices range from filing articles of formation to bankruptcy.

Absolutely, the vast majority of attorneys in private practice don't put in more than 40 hours a week.

I used to teach syntax and I like tigers because they fit my personality. Is that morally culpable?

Nah just go wherever for cheap and hang your own shingle. Businesses don't really care about prestige or experience if you can show them you're a hard worker and willing to hustle. Plus, if you're working for yourself you can set your own schedule, unlike the losers slaving away at big firms.

I mean, who would a business rather hire? Just a plain old lawyer, or a lawyer who runs his own small business? Obviously they can relate to the latter.

No corporate law refers only to businesses in the corporate format. Business law does the same thing but for different types of business entities. Sorry if i'm not taking your pop quizzes seriously

Make it multiple choice

What do i get if i get it right?

A better question might be how do you file to become an LLC 8) and what are the qualifications

You could definitely help me determine if a school like BU is optimal for Business law. Im concerned that the purpose of the t25 is corporate law and that outside of corporate of a3 its not worth the investment.

Let's try it this way. Who do you expect to work for doing "business but not corporate" law, doing what exactly?

Also please list some firms with corporate practice groups that do exclusively incorporations and zero work for, say, LLCs
