Review

'This book is eminently suitable...for any business law course.'
The Law Teacher (Journal of the Association of Law Teachers)

From the Back Cover

"This book is eminently suitable for business law courses’

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.

* Coverage of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005, Consumer Credit Act 2006, the Fraud Act 2006, the Employment Relations Act 2004, the Equality Act 2006, the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the Work and Families Act 2006
