ABSTRACT: Academic integrity education is an important tool used to reduce academic misconduct. Research shows that business students have a relatively high likelihood of committing acts of academic misconduct, and also reveals a link between academic misconduct and unethical business behaviour. This paper recommends the integration of academic integrity issues into the content of a business law course. It provides analysis of particular topics with academic integrity dimensions. Using academic misconduct to teach substantive legal topics provides students with an experiential learning opportunity.
