Don’t make this assignment more difficult than it actually is. Under “Announcement” , entitled “One Thing …”, there are two articles. For each article, summararize the article with one paragraph. The paragraphs should be 250 words, or less.
Also, please provide a a third paragraph. The third paraph should summarize how the articles will shape your “decision making” as a manager, a business ower, or an individual with dealing with a personal legal issue. The paragraph should answer, “what are you looking for in attorney”. It should answer how you will “manage” that relationship to avoid unnecessary loss of time and cost.
There is no “one” right answer for the third paragraph. However, it should make sense for what you are dealing with and looking for in an attorney. It should show that you understand what the two articles are about.
You are the “manager”. Remain professional, but poignant. You, your company, or your business are paying the cost for attorney fees. This paragraph should also be 250 words, or lesss.
As business professionals and future business professionals, you will read many business related books over the course of your career. For example, “Good to Great”, “80/20 Principal” and “Habit” are three of my favorites.
“ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results” is a recent New York Times Best Seller. In sum, the book describes “the value of simplifying one’s workload by focusing on the one most important task in any given project”.
Why is this significant to Business Law 308? This course covers topics that I learned over three years in law school, a bar exam, and 14+ years of legal service. Practically, I don’t believe we can do the various subjects and topics justice in a 12-week course.
However, you should leave the course being familiar with key legal terms and concepts that business professionals address frequently. The “one thing” I would like you to get out of this course is that the act of hiring and working with an attorney is a “relationship”.
Every business will need an attorney. Like most relationships that you can’t avoid, it has to be managed.
I will attach two articles that I believe summarizes “the good and the bad” with the relationship. The articles also cover areas in the relationship that will need the most attention and management.
The articles will be a homework assignment at some point during the semester. I will give you advanced notice.
