Business law five discussions

The expectation for the discussion posts will be that each student will answer the questions provided each week in 1) an original post of a minimum of 250 words answering the prompted questions utilizing the materials provided and any other sources that the student may find, which will be cited appropriately and 2) a response to one other student’s post during the period of time in which there is a substantive engagement with the posts. Comments such as “I agree” would not be considered substantive engagement with the original post.

Though this is an online class, participation is still crucial. “Participation” involves reading the assignments thoroughly, reading any handouts provided for the week, watching all videos (including update videos I add throughout the semester), contributing to class discussions, and completing online assignments. To be successful in this class, you should be checking your student email daily and logging in to our course at least 3 times a week. There are five discussions
First discussion
Contracts are often filled with a litany of different clauses and boilerplate language that often even the most well-educated individuals fail to read and consider the possible implications of each one. One such clause, which is almost always included in contracts ranging from multi-million-dollar real estate contracts to the iTunes user agreement, is that of the force majeure clause. This clause is included to protect parties in case of certain situations like, warfare, terrorism, natural disasters etc. In these situations, non-performance under a contract is excused based on the circumstances. Usually ignored, these clauses have come to the forefront in the wake of Covid-19. Below are a few articles that discuss the relationship between these clauses and Covid.Your task is to draft a hypothetical situation that would permit a party to argue that their performance should be excused under a contract for services, real estate, or any other scenario as a result of the impossibility of performance under Covid. For your reply post, engage with another student’s hypothetical situation and try and argue the situation from the other company’s position that the non-performance should not be excused.Below are a few resources that might be helpful to you in this task:
Second discussion
The law surrounding Secured Transactions is one of the densest and most difficult concepts to wrap one’s head around, but it is also one of the most important things a business must know. It can be the key to a company receiving a line of credit at an affordable rate and can put invaluable company assets at risk if not protected appropriately. The legal framework is well addressed to handle situations involving collateral and claims against the collateral, in terms of physical property like an automobile and a piece of business machinery. However, for a growing number of businesses, some of their most valuable assets are not physical, but instead ideas. Intellectual property, can be the key to a business’s long-term success, particular start-up companies, which might have comparatively few assets in which to be able to secure credit against. With this growing trend, and the article below in mind, I’d like you to answer the following questions:
What practical issues should a business consider when attempting to collateralize its intellectual property? What legal issues might be unique to using intellectual property as collateral versus more traditional assets?
If you were a creditor entering into a security agreement with a business who wanted to use intellectual property rights as the collateral, what type of information would you want to know and would this change your approach in how you treated the transaction?

Discussion Board

The roles and responsibilities of elected officials and legislative bodies differ from those of public administrators. Briefly explain the differences in these roles and provide one example. Then, in your opinion, explain some of the political challenges that public administrators face in carrying out their duties to interpret and enforce legislative mandates.

Voicing your opinion: Letter to a Member of Parliament Students will choose from a list of topics, complete research,

Voicing your opinion: Letter to a Member of Parliament
Students will choose from a list of topics, complete research, prepare for, and write a letter to an applicable Member of Parliament.
All research notes and relevant process materials must also be handed in for evaluation.
The letter should be typed, 12 font, 1.5 or 2.0 spacing, and include a Works Cited sheet containing a minimum of 3 sources.
The letter should be a maximum of 2 pages in length at 1.5 spacing. (Will not be read after that point)
The Letter
The letter should be researched and argumentative, with a main point of view stemming from a legal question about your chosen topic area. The letter should:
Start with an introduction that introduces who you are and why you are writing the letter. The intro should also explore your legal topic in detail and finish by identifying a legal issue within your topic and your position on that issue. Your intro should also identify Canadian laws and terminology relevant to the topic or issue
Your arguments should include researched perspectives in support of your position or rebuttals of opposing arguments
Conclude by restating your position and arguments. Finish by explaining what the Member of Parliament should do about your legal issue. What changes should be made to the law?




Kansas City Royals Supreme Court of Missouri 437 S.W.3d 184

The cases are assigned based on what group you are in, but each student will treat this as an individual assignment. You must write and submit an individual paper. Your response should be well rounded and analytical and should not just provide a conclusion or an opinion without explaining the reason for the choice. For full credit, you need to use the material from the week’s lectures, text, and/or discussions when responding to the questions. Post your case analysis in the corresponding week’s assignment dropbox. The case assignments are posted below in the Case Assignments.

The assignment should consist of a Word Document, 2 pages in length double spaced, 12-point font, 1-inch margins not including the title page and reference page. (Short papers will lose significant points!!). All cases will automatically be submitted to Turnitin. Your paper should follow the case format (below) and include a summary of the relevant facts, the law, judicial opinion, etc.

Research the case using the case citation in the DeVry Library under databases (select – HeinOnline),, and other legal sources. Research the parties and circumstances of the case itself.

Utilize the case format found in the Case Analysis Module.

Submit your assignment as a Microsoft Word document.

See Draft below 😉

short law discussion and a response

Because common-law decisions deal with everyday situations as they occur, social changes, inventions, and discoveries make it necessary for judges sometimes to look outside reported decisions for guidance in a CASE OF FIRST IMPRESSION
Discuss the above prompt
It’s should be brief (150-200) words
Afterwards pose a question of your choice so that another student can give a peer response
It can be a question of discussion such as the one above.

Law discussion question

New students are streaming into law schools across the country. But to become the next generation of lawyers, judges and activists, they’ll first need to read through a mountain of case law. In case law, judges define what acts of parliament actually mean, explain the common law and resolve disputes between citizens, organisations and sometimes state institutions.
Newspapers occasionally publish a list of the most important cases for students to be aware of. But it’s not just students who could benefit from learning about the law – after all, cases decided hundreds of years ago can set the precedent for decisions that the courts in England and Wales make today.
Here’s my pick of some of the most important cases throughout history: ones that can teach us all something about how the law mirrors social and political attitudes, while revealing the principles and patterns that make up the country’s version of justice.
Select a legal precedent of your choice under common law that shaped modern day law and explain why.
Make it as long or short as you want but not less than 300 words
As long as the points are clear and accurate the length of the paper will not determine the grading

an appropriate role for the judiciary

What constitutes an appropriate role for the judiciary? Some people argue that courts have become too powerful and that judges legislate from the bench. What does it mean for a court to be activist? What does it mean for a court to show judicial restraint? Although conservatives have long complained about the activism of liberal justices and judges. in recent years liberals have pointed out that conservative judges and justices are now more likely to overturn precedents and question the power of elected institutions of government. Conservatives counter by saying they are simply returning to an older precedent that had been ignored by liberals. If both liberals and conservatives engage in judicial activism. what is the role of the concept of “activism” (perhaps judicial activism is just a term used to describe a court decision you disagree with)?

Chapter 15 – Mistakes, Fraud and Voluntary Consent

Chapter 15 – Mistakes, Fraud and Voluntary Consent
1. Read the case Desgro v. Pack Case (Links to an external site.)
2. Watch the youtube video on fraud (Links to an external site.) in contracts
3. Carefully explain in your own words the following words and statements from the case:
1. The trial court granted summary judgment to defendant, finding that the contractual limitation period was reasonable and enforceable. The trial court stated that plaintiff “had plenty of time to find any deficiency” because he had been living in the home for at least ten months when the contractual limitations period expired. (As part of this explanation, please define “summary judgment.”)
2. A grant of summary judgment is not presumed correct by this court; rather, this court must “make a fresh determination” in each case that the requirements of Tenn. R. Civ. P. 56 have been satisfied. In doing so, this court must consider the evidence in the light most favorable to the non-movant and draw all reasonable inferences in his favor.
3. The interpretation and construction of a plain and unambiguous written contract is a question of law for determination by the court. It is the duty of the court to enforce the contract according to its plain terms, and the language used in the contract must be taken and understood in its plain, ordinary and popular sense. However, “the cardinal rule for interpretation of contracts is to ascertain the intention of the parties and to give effect to that intention as best can be done consistent with legal principles.” Courts may determine the intention of the parties “by a fair construction of the terms and provisions of the contract, by the subject matter to which it has reference, by the circumstances of the particular transaction giving rise to the question, and by the construction placed on the agreement by the parties in carrying out its terms.” (Do not repeat the quotes, use your own words to explain.)
4. In this case, the agreement at issue is not an adhesion contract because it was not shown that plaintiff had to “take it or leave it” or that he was forced to acquiesce to the terms of the agreement to get the service he desired. Plaintiff did not question the terms of the agreement, did not attempt to bargain with the defendant regarding the agreement, and there was no proof that defendant told plaintiff he had to sign the document to obtain the service. Plaintiff stated that he contacted defendant at the recommendation of his realtor, but plaintiff likely could have obtained the service from someone else because plaintiff did not show that defendant was the only home inspector in the area. Accordingly, we do not need to examine the contract’s provisions to determine their reasonableness because the agreement at issue is not a contract of adhesion.
5. In this case, the language plaintiff complains of is not an unenforceable exculpatory clause. The language is a contractual limitations period, which our court has repeatedly held to be enforceable so long as the period is reasonable. The provision does not exculpate defendant from most or all liability, but rather limits the time period within which plaintiff can file suit against defendant. Thus, plaintiff’s argument in this regard is without merit.
