Isabella:

Great question. one way to proceed is to learn as much as possible about the areas of business that interest you and use that as a guide to explore the legal issues that are interrelated. For example if you are interested in Entrepreneurship and starting companies the area of law associated with starting companies is different than that related to Human Resources or contracts disputes or even Intellectual Property. Another way to explore is to take a survey class like Intro to Business or even Intro to Business Law. At every university and even online these classes will give you an overview before you dive deeper. One key element in the study of business law is to understand whom is your client. Are you looking to explore working for a business as an In house Attorney, or in some other function in a business, are you looking to start businesses, are you looking to stand up for consumers rights are you looking to complement another business function like finance, accounting, stock brokering etc . Each will provide you with a different focus in the law and at times a vastly different perspective.

Don recommends the following next steps:

Reach out to your HS and College Alumae/i networks and schedule a networking call with business leaders and lawyers
Seek out trade associations that might provide additional educations and networking opportunities such as https://alacommunity.org/
Read your local business journal. https://www.bizjournals.com/ this will give you a sense of the legal, economic and regulatory issues facing businesses
Remember this is a journey not a destination, enjoy your exploration and don't lock yourself into one perspective or course of study. balance going deep into one area with being broad across many
Best of Luck!
