Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"What I like about this book is that it is a business book, not a law book. I like the short chapters."

"The author's narrative style, the vignettes, and the humor are excellent. The book is relevant and topical. Well done. Concise and clear. The definitions in the margins are excellent. My students all end up keeping the book rather than selling it back."

Meet the Author

Jeffrey F. Beatty was a two-time winner of the Beckwith Prize, Boston University's highest undergraduate teaching award. His research expertise included constitutional law, torts, contracts, and the uniform commercial code. In 1998, the Academy of Legal Studies in Business (ALSB) awarded him the Charles Hewitt Award for excellence in teaching, presented annually to one professor in the United States. The highest honor for teaching conferred by the ALSB, this award is dedicated to the communication and recognition of creative teaching practices of business law. Prior to his teaching, Professor Beatty worked for several years as a legal aid lawyer, concentrating on immigration law and general civil litigation. He also practiced in a private firm, where he concentrated on general civil litigation, including trials and appeals of tort, contract, employment, and property cases.
