Integrating Academic Integrity Education with the Business Law Course: Why and How?
McGill, Shelley
Journal of Legal Studies Education, v25 n2 p241-282 Sum-Fall 2008
This article advocates integrating academic integrity education into the business law course. Many have suggested teaching business ethics this way but have ignored the natural overlap in legal content with the traditional business law course. This article focuses on why and how business law instructors should integrate the two. Rather than highlighting only the ethical components of academic integrity, this approach emphasizes the legal aspects of academic misconduct. It connects personal student experiences with many of the substantive legal topics covered in the course, thereby improving the learning opportunity. In the second part of the article, various suitable business law topics are identified. The appendices contain examples of appropriate exercises. (Contains 107 footnotes.)
