Overview

WEST'S LEGAL ENVIRONMENT OF BUSINESS is the #1 text for this course—setting the standard by delivering comprehensive, authoritative, and cutting-edge coverage in an interesting and accessible format. Its recipe for success includes the same "black letter law" flavor as its #1 Business Law counterpart, West's Business Law, but with a more specific focus on current topics like ethics, government regulation, and administrative law. Updated and expanded teaching materials, including the new West's Legal Environment NOW online assignment administration tool, keep this text unmatched in its ability to support the key objectives of the course.
