Overview

The Sixth Edition offers a basic explanation of the legal rights and responsibilities of people in both the public and private sectors. Co-authored by a practicing attorney and a college professor, Business Law features practical and up-to-date content written in clear, straightforward language. The authors avoid using court jargon and show rather than tell students about the law with in-text examples, current and interesting cases, and ethical dilemmas. In-text examples immediately illustrate and reinforce the concepts under review. At the end of each chapter, Cases for Review present mini-cases and ask students to review the facts and make a judgment based on concepts learned in the chapter. Questions and Problems to Discuss also test students' comprehension of key chapter topics.
