Please be simple and concise.
Write a short story that is 400 to 500 words that incorporates a topic you have learned so far in business law. Then, you will write a 150-200 word response to how a BC court would resolve the conflict you have created.
Your story needs to meet the regular parameters of a story. In other words, there needs to be characters, conflict, and a resolution. A nice summary of the elements of a story can be found here.
The characters in your story should have a conflict involving one (or more) of the following topics:
- Negligence (or any of the individual elements, including Duty of Care)
- Formation of a contract (Consensus, Capacity to make a contract, Consideration, Legality, or Intention)
- Unenforceable contracts (privity of contract, exclusion clauses, unconscionability or duress)
- Sale of Goods Act (merchantable quality)
- Consumer protection (unique parts of the Business Practices and Consumer Protection Act and Consumer BC)
A good example of what a short story might look like is the one in assignment 4, question 3 (involving Macy and her snowmobile – just keep in mind your word requirements!).
After writing your story, you should write a 150-200 word response to how you think a court would resolve the conflict in the story. Guiding questions which may help you write this is: what is the relevant law in the area? Who wronged who? How does the law in the area apply to the story? What is the remedy?
