'This book is eminently suitable ... for any Business Law course.' The Law Teacher (Journal of the Association of Law Teachers) - review of a previous edition.
The sixth edition of this popular book has been comprehensively updated. Business Law provides a clear, jargon-free text that is easy to understand text for students new to law. The coverage is wide and well illustrated by cases, diagrams, specimen documents and questions. The text provides an excellent teaching resource for business law. It focuses on introductory aspects of English law and the English legal system; the law relating to business organisations, namely sole traders, partnerships and companies; legal aspects of business transactions, covering contract, tort, sale and supply of goods, consumer law and criminal liability in the context of business; and the law relating to employment.
Features of this sixth edition-
· Major changes to Part 1, resulting from the provisions of the Access to Justice Act 1999, the likely effects of the Human Rights Act 1998 and, in EU law, the Treaty of Amsterdam.
· Important changes to legal terminology ('the end of legal Latin') and civil procedure brought about by Lord Woolf in the form of the Civil Procedure Rules 1998.
· Significant changes to Part 2 on business organisations in the area of partnerships under the Limited Liability Partnerships Act 2000 and the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, together with new company law decisions of the courts.
· Contract law chapters now incorporate the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999, the Competition Act 1998 and the Electronic Communications Act 2000.
· In employment law, developments such as the Employment Rights Act 1999 and attendant SIs covering issues such as working time, maternity leave, parental leave and time off for family emergencies.

when i picked this book up i thought that it was too high a price to pay for a book on an area for which other books cost a fraction of the price. upon inspection i found this book to be very easy and concise to read it is all perfectly laid out so that reference to it is neat.
Well worth price paid. if you want to buy it for cheaper check out the internetunder the 'books' tab its £price cheap huh!

I purchased this book for a university module; Introduction to Business Law. The book was on the recommended reading list and I found it really helpful. The book was well laid out and easy to navigate. The authors had made the text easy to understand, unlike some law books which can be very heavy going for novices.

This book is nice, since i am a beginner in business law, i find the book interesting, the language is well explained and the jargon are kept to the minimum for a lay man.

The service was good, well done to amazon, but the book is not the best choice, it is rather boring, in the way is presented, written and structured. For a student who did not chose law as a main subject this is not the book to buy, the choice would be a more interesting book that can help the reader get into the subject which this book does not do.
Hope it helps.
