The Business Law Specialist

The laws governing business and the operations within are based on fundamental principles that stretch back to the simplest beginnings of commerce and trade. Despite these simple principles, business has become more and more sophisticated with time requiring a number of ways to codify certain aspects of business transactions and ensure that all corporate entities are operating in a way that serves the common good.

Businesses operate every day under accepted theories of contract and tort law, promoting equitable transactions and ensuring corporate responsibility that advance accepted notions of good business practices. Corporations are also subject to various statutory frameworks that dictate the treatment and conditions of employees, ensure environmental protection and protect consumers from powerful organizations when necessary.

I had someone there every step of the way. They walked me through what could have been a very stressful process. It put me on a path that started an epic journey.

-Kasey, Fort Riley

Everything was easy and my advisor with The Major Group walked me through it all. This was my third time going to college and by far the least stressful enrollment process.

-Felicia, Ft. Campbell

I loved the whole process. Everyone was very helpful and made sure that the program I wanted to join was something I wanted to do. It also helped me put my goals in place.

-Crystal, Fort Riley

There was a lot of help along the way, which was great. It was smooth and everything went well.

-Elizabeth, Fort Gordon

It was easy, simple, and quick. There was someone there every step of the way to help you fill out all the required documents. I would recommend to all military spouses who want to go to school, especially if you’re a stay-at-home spouse.

-Aeisha, Hunter Army Air Field

Everything was very easy to do and got done rather quickly from start to finish.

-Anne, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii
