Most of us have had no formal contact with “Law” in our earlier years and therefore we lack a common “base” upon which an advanced study may be undertaken. This is unfortunate because law welcomed us into the world in the form of our birth certificates and will affect us in countless ways during the balance of our lives.
Therefore we need a common topic with which to begin and experience tells us that this is best supplied by an examination of the “environment” or “surrounding” within which law, business, and the laws of business must function. It is here that law is created, defined, redefined, and applied – and it is known as a “society.”
