From the Back Cover

The second edition of this major text continues to provide an exciting and challenging introduction to the study of business law.  It covers a wide variety of business law topics in considerable depth and at a high academic standard whilst maintaining an easily readable style.

The content of the book is more comprehensive than is generally found in books of this nature. It includes: the English legal system and dispute resolution; the law of contract; sale of goods and the supply of services; agency; the law of torts; consumer credit; company and partnership law; employment law; intellectual property; trade descriptions; misleading prices, and product safety. The integrated approach taken emphasises the policy behind the law and how different areas of law are interconnected.

Business Law is a complete teaching package with many student-friendly pedagogic features and superb lecturer support, including a companion website and an innovative annotated Lecturer’s Guide.

New to this edition

  • A new chapter on the law of torts.
  • Recent decisions and case law developments, including those arising as a result of the Human Rights Act 1998.
  • In the area of consumer rights and protection, changes to the Sale of Goods Act, the Supply of Goods and Services Act, the Supply of Goods (Implied Terms) Act and the Unfair Contract Terms Act.
  • Major changes in the areas of bankruptcy and corporate insolvency under the Enterprise Act 2002.
  • In the area of employment law, new cases and legislative developments, including the Employment Act 2002 and the new raft of anti-discrimination regulations.
  • Detailed consideration of the Limited Liability Partnership Act 2000.
  • The Electronic Commerce Regulations and the Computer Misuse Act.

Key features

  • Comprehensive - the subject coverage of the book is wide enough for this to be the only law book that most business students will need.
  • Easy to read - the style of the text is straightforward and accessible. 
  • Clear structure - the text in each chapter is detailed but contains frequent headings, test your understanding questions and key points to keep the reader firmly focused and constantly aware of the context and structure of the material.
  • Additional support for lecturers and students - in the form of a Lecturer's Guide, and a companion website with student and lecturer access, providing regular updates on changes to the law that affect the book.
  • A huge number of multiple-choice and summary questions - designed to be intellectually demanding and to give the reader the chance to apply the law contained in each chapter to problem situations.  Answers are given in the Lecturer's Guide and on the lecturer part of the website.

Ewan MacIntyre LL.B. Cert Ed is a Senior Lecturer at Nottingham Law School.  He is an experienced educational writer in the field of business law and has taught the subject for many years.

Format: Paperback
This book went great along side my Business Law course. It has a vast number of cases along with detailed notes describing all the relative law. The only downside is the price, but this is the same for most text books. Would definitely recommend for anyone studying this subject.
