Abstract

Business law is a branch of law that deals with various aspects of doing business.

It encompasses a wide range of legal principles and rules that govern commercial transactions. It governs such things as business formation, licensing, negotiations, contracts, business operations, and compliance with regulation. Business laws exist at local, state, national, or international level. They touch our lives through every contractual dealing undertaken. Every nation has its own business laws, which individual businesses must know in order to have responsible business practices in that nation. This paper provides an introduction to business law.
