Today’s business world requires leaders who are ethical and understand the complex legal impact of their decisions. The Michigan Ross business law faculty can help turn you into that kind of leader.

Law plays a central role in value creation, and Michigan Ross shows you how all the different aspects of law — antitrust, contracts, corporate governance, employment, intellectual property, liability, and securities regulation — intersect when making business decisions.

Business law faculty research focuses on the role of law in promoting ethical conduct and more socially responsible behavior — values that inform your learning.

CHAIR: LYNDA OSWALD

Lynda J. Oswald's research focuses on intellectual and real property law issues. Her works focus primarily on liability issues in contexts such as secondary infringement liability in patent law and the personal liability of corporate officers, as well as on property rights issues arising in the context of eminent domain and regulatory takings.
