1 BUSL301 Sample/Revision Questions
Note that the tutorial questions in the unit are a very good place to practice your ability to apply your law.
What follows are sample/revision questions. They do not necessarily indicate the content or complexity of the actual exam or the length or number of questions - however, they do allow you to practice the skills you will need. These questions are for your private study and revision purposes the content in the sample questions is very similar to the material covered in the relevant class and is accessible in the texts accordingly; you should be aware of the issues relevant to the questions and be able to revise and check your responses/answers for yourself.
You can also prepare for the exam by setting out questions for yourself and then writing short answers, for example: Why do directors have fiduciary duties? What is a civil penalty? After a little study, you can make up lots of questions like these and then write a few lines worth of answers. Don't use your texts to help answer (the final exam is a closed book, and you should get used to responding to questions without needing your text beside you). The benefit is in using what you know and modifying it so that your response is as precise as possible.
