Overview

This text is designed for use in business law and legal environment courses offered in universities, colleges, and schools of business and management. Because of the broad coverage and variety of the material, instructors may adapt this volume to specially designed courses in business law by assigning and emphasizing different combinations of subjects. All topics included in the business law sections of the CPA exam are covered by the text, and portions of the text covering commonly tested area on the CPA exam are marked to aid students in exam preparation. For this eighth edition, Mann (law, University of North Carolina) and Roberts (business law, University of North Carolina) have revised material to comply with the latest AICPA content specification guidelines for the new computer-based Uniform CPA Examination.
