Overview

This text is a mainstream legal environment text intended for the undergraduate market. It will cover many of the same topics currently found in most competitive products. The most important differentiating feature will be the change in perspective from emphasis on case law to focusing on the direct needs of business majors both in tone and structure. It is evident from the table of contents that several topics have been linked to management decision-making processes. The goal of the book will not be to train budding lawyers but rather to demonstrate that legal concepts are an integral part of management decision-making.
