Overview

Upon its original publication in 1963,Corley's Legal Environment of Business was the first and only business law textbook to emphasize public rather than private law,government regulation of business rather than contracts,and legal relationships rather than business transactions. A major innovation,it established a new course that the authors termed the "legal environment" of business. Over the years others have attempted to attain the success and stature of The Legal and Regulatory Environment of Business,but none has been able to match its timely,innovative coverage. Substantially updated,the tenth edition continues the text's reputation for ethics,authority,and coverage of current areas of importance to business.
