To ALL who is interested in taking BLAW10001: Principles of Business Law,

This is my personal notes that I made in preparation for the exam.
BLAW10001 covers 24 hours of lectures throughout the semester, however there is a huge reliance on the textbook which must be self-studied.

BLAW focuses on two elements: 1) the principle and logic of the law 2) the case studies which are examples which illustrate how the principles are being used. The textbook includes all case studies, including those not mentioned in the lecture slides. However, only selected case studies from the textbook will be tested (This will be mentioned by the coordinator in the first week).

In my revision for BLAW, I prepared notes based on both the textbook and the lecture notes. The notes are comprehensive and also only include the topics tested (For example, the textbook includes Property Law, however, that is not tested, and thus not included). The aim is to make essential notes which include every principle and case required for the examinations without wasting additional time on law cases not tested.

I enjoyed BLAW because every principle is logical and we have experienced many of those principles in our daily lives. There are two 10% online assessments in week 4 and 8 and I lost a few percent in those assessments. However, I was adequately prepared for the final 80% examination and obtained 95 in the end.

Feel free to ask me any questions about BLAW, it can be taken in both semesters. I am also selling my cheat sheet cheap! Just check my profile to find it!
