Then post whatyou thought was the most important concept(s), method(s), term(s),and/or any other thing that you felt was worthy of your understanding ineach assigned textbook chapter.Your initial post should be based uponthe assigned reading for the week, so the textbook should be a sourcelisted in your reference section and cited within the body of the text.Other sources are not required but feel free to use them if they aid inyour discussion.
Also, provide a graduate-level response to each of the following questions:
- Lawyersare changing their pay structures. It used to be that they would billhourly (top dollar for top lawyers, less experienced helpers had cheaperrates). Now they’re beginning to price like consultants—per project.Thus they must begin assessing the value-added to the client firm of thelegal expertise and assistance. What advice would you give a law firmto proceed fairly and profitably?
- Goonline and compare three franchises (e.g., franchise.org,americasbestfranchises.com, or whichfranchise.com). Choose twofranchises in the same industry (e.g., fast food) and the thirdfranchise from another industry (e.g., hair cutting). Make a table toreport the fee structures (upfront, continued licensing), as well asbenefits touted for franchisees of each franchise system. What wouldtempt you to pitch in with some friends and buy a franchise when youfinish your degree?
