Covenants Not to Compete in Employment Contracts: Worth a Closer Look in the Classroom
Murphy, Tonia Hap
Journal of Legal Studies Education, v32 n1 p131-171 Win 2015
The topic of noncompetes is a rich one for a business law or legal environment course. It presents opportunities to tie law and policy, law and ethics, law and strategy. It exemplifies the challenges businesses and employees may face in a changing, complex, uncertain legal environment. Accordingly, this article provides materials on noncompetes that are readily adaptable for use in business law or legal environment courses, on the undergraduate or graduate level. Instructors may simply use the materials gathered here to inform a deeper lecture and class discussion on noncompetes. They may put students to work on the group exercise or a written assignment, or both. Or these materials may inspire ideas for other worthy exercises.
