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. 

Features include:

· Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter highlight the key points that a student is expected to understand after studying each particular topic

· Case summaries have been carefully selected to illustrate the principle under discussion and are clearly distinguished from the main body of the text. Case commentary puts the decision in context and encourages further reflection.

· Bulleted and numbered points stress the main issues throughout ·

End of chapter self-test questions encourage students to test their understanding after reading and to reflect on what you have learnt. Selected answers will be available on the Companion Website

· Specimen examination questions allow students to prepare effectively for their exams

· Companion website, at www.mylawchamber.co.uk/keenanriches, includes regular legal updates and selected answers to the self-test questions in the book

· A Tutor's Manual provides photocopiable masters of diagrams in the textbook and other useful aids.

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.

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.
