The course gives legal knowledge applicable on rural enterprises, and method knowledge that constitutes a basis for continued studies with regard to the independent work (the degree project).

On completion of the course, students will be able to:
- implement legal problem solving of a simpler character within business-critical areas,
- explain and apply legal concepts that are central to owner-led companies in the green industry,
- request and demand purchases of legal services from specialists,
- formulate a scientific and researchable problem
- account for, analyse and critically discuss different research methods that can be used for the independent work,
- formulate a work plan for an individual assignment.


The course utilizes different teaching methods to promote teacher-led knowledge communication as well as student activity and discussion through lectures, literature studies, exercises, tasks and seminars.

The course is divided into two parts. In part 1, legal issues are dealt with on the basis of legal rules, and partly problem-oriented with reality-based tasks:
- the function of the legal rules for companies with emphasis on owner-led companies, basic method and problem solving in agreements and disputes,
- basic legal systems, the relationship of EU law to Swedish law,
- basic marital law/cohabitant law and inheritance law,
- basic contractual law, purchase-based including distance contracts and international purchasing, marketing, common standard contracts in green industry including credit standard agreements,
- basic association law with emphasis on owner-led liability companies,
- basic labour legislative questions in owner-led companies in the green industry,
- basic real-estate law including purchase, lease, administration, pledge, property regulation, etc.

Part 2 deals with the theory of science, research methods, problem formulation and the disposition of the thesis as well as formulation of work- and time plan.
