From the Back Cover
Law for Business Students is written in a lively and concise style for the reader who is new to the study of law. The book shows how the law operates in the context of society and affects people on a daily basis. Regular opportunities for progress assessment in the form of quizzes and questions with answers are provided. There is also a chapter on study skills, revision and passing examinations.
All the topics appearing most frequently on syllabuses and examination papers are covered- the English legal system, contract, business torts, consumer law, consumer credit, agency, sale of goods, employment, basic company law, and intellectual property law. The second edition brings the original text up to date on a wide front, with new case law and legislation. The Woolf reforms to civil litigation are included and an assessment made of the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998. The chapters on employment law have been expanded to include consolidating legislation and the Employment Relations Act 1999.
Law for Business Students is eminently suitable for non-specialist students of business law on a variety of courses, from undergraduate degree programmes to professional courses in business and accountancy.
