Overview

This is the first legal environment text to take diversity implications into consideration as a normal and necessary part of business decisions. It offers a view of the legal environment of business from the broader perspective of not only the law and its theory, but also how it works in practice taking into consideration the factors of ethics and diversity. The goal of this text is to equip students for the legal, ethical, and diversity implications of the business world they will move into, so that their decisions do not result in surprising, expensive, protracted, and embarrassing litigation that could have easily been avoided.
