When you have selected your company, research and cover the following points in a well written essay. Use APA format and topical headings.

1. In an introductory paragraph identify the company, the topic and a well-crafted thesis statement.

2. Briefly describe the company and the nature of its business and corporate business environment.  Do not spend a lot of time on the history of the company, but do describe sufficiently to create meaningful context. This should only need to be a paragraph.

3. Research, define and discuss the legal issues and regulatory environment for the company’s consumer or antitrust issue. (i.e., What are the laws involved?) Include case law (requirement).

4. Ethical dilemma and frameworks: Identify the ethical dilemma that the company presents with respect to its antitrust or consumer problem. This should be encapsulated in a single sentence.  Evaluate two ethical frameworks with respect to the company’s management’s decisions that led to the situation.

• One of these should be the ethical framework you identify as the framework the company followed in its decision-making. 

• The other should be a contrasting framework that might have produced a different situation for the company.

5. Other legal topics that relate to the company’s business: Also, clearly define and evaluate three (3) additional legal topics (NOT antitrust or consumer protection) that we covered this term — and that are  explained in your text and required readings, and apply them to the company’s business.  (Hint: Review the legal topics in the textbook and cite to the the text in your analysis. We covered many subjects. Examples: contracts, torts, product liability, bankruptcy, securities & stocks trading, employment issues, defamation, privacy, ADR, etc.  Include illustrative case law.)

7. Conclusion.

8. References list
