This Chapter Business Law is very precise, detailed and straightforward. The terms with regards to rights and legalities of the Common Law included in this chapter are very useful and relevant for my current situation and my future endeavor. Moreso, it helps me understand deeper when Sir Kene summarized the topics discussed at the end of each chapter then followed by group discussion which are divided into 2 then all in that group interacts each other about a situation given to resolved it related to what have been discussed in that particular chapter. Very informative and interesting course. Excellent Sir Kene
