The Business Law Center is a place where you can gain the skill sets, experiences and contacts to begin and enhance a business law career.
Over the past decade California’s economy has been ranked in the Top 10 economies in the world.* Western State’s Business Law Center seeks to leverage its place in that economy to provide students with meaningful opportunities to engage with the laws, policies, regulations, and practices that impact a variety of businesses.
Outside of the classroom, Western State’s Business Law Center invites a variety of speakers to campus, hosts networking opportunities for our students, and works with our Externship Program to secure meaningful practical Business Law experience for our students. Student activities, such as the Business Law Association and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA), provide Business Law students with a variety of on-campus leadership opportunities.
Inside the classroom, Western State’s Business Law Certificate curriculum reflects a broad offering of rigorous courses at the nexus of law and business. The Business Law Center strives to ensure that students can develop a repertoire of legal and business skills to make themselves globally competitive in an economic marketplace.
Contracts I and II and Business Associations are part of the required foundational coursework for all Western State students. All upper-level students at Western State may then choose from a wide variety of Business Law electives, such as Sports Law, Intellectual Property, and Securities Regulation.
For students looking to go beyond an elective or two in Business Law, the Business Law Certificate program allows them to focus on a specific, broad, and deep course of study in Business Law. Students who complete the Business Law Certificate program will earn a permanent designation of this specialty on their transcripts.
