Business Law: What is it?
Business Law, sometimes called Commercial Law or Mercantile Law, is the body of law which governs, whether by convention, agreement, or national or international legislation, the dealings within business and commerce. It is often considered to be a branch of Civil Law and deals with issues both of private and public law.
This area of the law draws on a variety of legal disciplines, including tax law, intellectual property, real estate, sales, employment law, bankruptcy, business contracts, sale of goods, banking, insurance, finance, & partnerships, among others.
What does this mean?
Commercial Law regulates corporate contracts, hiring practices, and the manufacture and sales of consumer goods. Business law touches everyday lives through every contractual dealing undertaken. Contract terms must be legal, certain, and possible of performance.
