Business Law - A Legal Guide to the First Three Years of Your Business

This course will be broken into two parts – the first from a transactional perspective and the second from a liability perspective. The transactional part will address: the types of entities an owner may choose, benefits and drawbacks of each; how to form each entity, and considerations; and types of contracts that a small business owner will run into and how to address/negotiate certain business terms. The liability part will address: employee management and Montana law with respect to hiring and firing employees; and best practices to avoid liability and litigation. This class is designed to address what we believe are many of the legal issues that young business will face from years 0-3 in their operations.

5 Things the Students Will Learn:

1. Choosing the best entity to form (Corp, LLC, partnership)
2. Formation process 
3. Reading and understanding contracts
4. Employees, hiring, firing and everything in between
5. Best practices to protect your business from liability
