BMAN 10901: LAW IN A MANAGEMENT
CONTEXT
Law is pervasive in modern society and nowhere is this
more true than in relation to the area of business and
management. This module aims, therefore, to provide students
with a basic understanding of the English Legal System, its
principles and institutions. By familiarising students with key legal
concepts, distinctions and issues, it is intended that they will be able
to recognise and evaluate the relevance of law to business and
management both in theory and practice. To this end, the module
compares and contrasts legal mechanisms with alternative methods
of dispute resolution, and seeks to place the English legal system
within a broader European and international context. It also
introduces students to some important substantive legal and policy
issues, including business forms, corporate manslaughter, general
employer liability, intellectual property, the impact of European
Union Law and the legal regulation of the employment relationship.
Finally, the course will seek to arm students with a range of basic
legal skills and an understanding of how to apply these to
business/management examples.

“The nature and extent of legal regulation [of the
employment relationship] has been determined
not by some abstract rule-making force, but by
the interplay of judicial innovations, public policy
controversy, the relative power of management
and labour interests and party politics with a
view to electoral advantage”
(Lewis, R: “The Historical Development of Labour Law” in [1976] 14 BJIR 1)
