Business law brings order to the world of commerce by governing all aspects of business relations from the formation of companies to day-to-day transactions. This paper provides a general overview of business law and covers issues such as socially irresponsible corporations, government regulations, anti-trust provisions and mergers and acquisitions.

From the Paper:

"Corporations have a responsibility to the society in which they operate and not merely to their shareholders. They have a fiduciary responsibility to shareholders and are in effect representing those shareholders in business, producing goods and services, amassing a return on the investment of the shareholders, and then returning a proper share of that return to those shareholders. If the corporation does not act with a sense of responsibility, however, that reflects badly on the corporation and so on the shareholders, reducing their return. In today's business environment, there are any number of actions which a company might take that would be perceived as socially irresponsible, and more and more companies are finding that if this does occur and is found out, the company and its shareholders suffer."
