As we discussed in this class, society, through its laws and policies impacts business, and business in turn impacts society. The purpose of this paper is to give you experience in writing a brief analysis of a law that impacts a business corporation in California. You can choose a law and a corporation with which you are familiar. For example, you might analyze The Sarbanes Oxley Act, 2002, or the Family and Medical Leave Act, 1993, Americans with Disabilities Act, or some other law. You can use the following as guidelines to structure your paper. Make sure your title has some indication to what you are analyzing—do not be so creative with the title that it obscures the focus.
