Overview

Taking a dynamic and contemporary approach to the law and business, this book covers both private law and public law. It emphasizes the importance of incorporating a questioning dimension into legal reasoning, which involves critical thinking and the consideration of the impact of ethics on the outcome being considered. Providing comprehensive, modern coverage of legal environment topics, this important book addresses the legal, social, political, global, international, and regulatory environment of business, and shows how critical thinking can impact the capacity to evaluate legal issues and arguments. The book presents a clear, step-by-step model for asking critical thinking questions as well an abundance of recent business examples. Contains classic as well as recent court cases to illustrate the legal issues. These cases feature the actual language of the court as well as dissents in some cases to demonstrate alternative views. It also emphasizes the importance of the international business environment through a full chapter on the global environment of business and a section relating the topics in each chapter to an international dimension. The second edition of The Legal Environment of Business has been revised to include new and updated cases, such as the Paula Corbin Jones case and the Oprah Winfrey case of "veggie libel." This edition also includes several new or revised chapters. There is now one additional chapter on Contracts and one new chapter on employee benefits. The chapter on debtors and creditors has been updated. A review of the Decency in Communications Act is also provided. Finally, the book includes numerous and relevant website addresses to provide additional information on the topics covered in each chapter. An essential reference guide for every management professional.
