The text is designed as a "hands-on," transactional guide for future and current business managers, including entrepreneurs. It provides a broad and a detailed understanding of how law impacts daily management decisions and business strategies. No manager operating in he complex and ever-changing global environment of the late 1990s and the early 21st century can compete successfully without this knowledge. The topics covered in Managers and the Legal Environment demonstrate its focus on meeting the needs of business managers. The text covers not only such essential legal topics as agency, contracts, torts, criminal law, antitrust, and employment law, but also others of vital concern to business managers, such as intellectual property, lending transactions, and securities offerings, as well as international business transactions.

Editorial Reviews

New edition of a text that provides a broad and detailed understanding of how law impacts daily management decisions and business strategies. With an emphasis upon ethical considerations, Bagley (business administration, Harvard Business School) covers essential legal topics such as agency, contracts, torts, criminal law, antitrust, as well as employment law, intellectual property, lending transactions, securities regulation, and environmental law. He also addresses current concerns in business regulation such as consumer privacy and the Internet, the World Trade Organization, copyright law in cyberspace, mandatory arbitration of employment disputes, employer liability for sexual harassment, selective disclosure of inside information to securities analysts, and the creation, sale, and patentability of genetically modified organisms. Each of the 23 chapters contains three to nine examples of law in action, boxed discussion of how the laws apply to cyberspace, and economic, historical, and political perspectives. Annotation c.

    Great intro law textbook!

    I really enjoyed this textbook. This book was required in my MBA business law class. I really enjoyed the easy reading style of the book and the focus on real cases to illustrate the principles.
