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.
