Examination of domestic and international laws affecting retail entrepreneurship and online commerce, such as data privacy and breach response, intellectual property protection, sales tax, advertising and unfair trade practices, consumer protection laws, employment laws, and legal obligations involving physical locations.
The Department of Retailing is revitalizing its current Master’s Program to better reflect the needs of today’s students and retail practitioners. In that regard, some courses will be developed or modified to focus on innovative channels of marketing goods and services (e.g., e-commerce, mobile-commerce), and technology used in the industry. Since its inception in 2010, RETL 525 (Law for retailers) has focused primarily on entrepreneurship and management of brick-and mortar retail establishments and associated legal risks. The newly revised version provides more emphasis on e-commerce, and addresses legal issues that had previously been either unaddressed by law (e.g., GDPR) or unsettled by courts (e.g., online sales tax).

Oh, I had typed up a nice letter, but in any event, yes, the law school is happy to support the proposed name change. Thanks.

An email response to me is fine. It doesn’t have to be that formal.

Greetings Dr. Nelson,
The Retailing Department is proposing to change the name of a current course to encompass the fact that many of our students are opening up their own boutiques and online stores.
Thus, we are proposing the following change:
RETL 525 Law for Retailers à change the course title to “Legal Aspects of Entrepreneurship and E-commerce.”
This class is meant for both senior and graduate Retailing students to understand legal ramifications of store ownership and now, Internet sites.
I would appreciate your support for this name change.
Your proposal is being returned for the following reason(s):
• We are requesting that you obtain a letter of concurrence from the Law School due to the possible overlap in content coverage.
• The undergraduate grade scale is in error and should be corrected.
If the above concerns are addressed, and the proposal reaches the Curricula and Courses Committee by noon on October 19th, it will be approved and included in those courses being recommended to the Faculty Senate for the upcoming Faculty Senate meeting. If the committee receives it after that date, it will be considered during the next Curricula and Courses review cycle. It can still make it into the 2019 Bulletin if I receive a corrected proposal by November 9th.
Please contact me if you have questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
John Gerdes, Chair803email@example.comFaculty Senate Committee on Curricula and Courses
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We have approved the proposal and are moving it forward to the Faculty Senate. It is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
Update will appear in the 1920 Undergraduate & Graduate Bulletin to be published 2.15.19.
