Review of previous edition
The Law Teacher, 2006
The new edition of this popular text continues to provide comprehensive coverage of the law for non-law students in a clear and straightforward manner. Highly regarded, Business Law has been fully updated and is well illustrated with cases and diagrams throughout.
The text is divided into four distinct parts. Part One introduces the student to the nature of the law and the English legal system. Part Two examines the different types of business organisations and Part Three explores contract law, tort law, consumer law and criminal liability as they relate to business. The final part, Business Resources, introduces the reader to business property and employment law.
A user-friendly colour text design aids navigation throughout the text.
