Business Law offers a basic explanation of the legal rights and responsibilities of people in both the public and private sectors. Co-authored by a practicing attorney and a college professor, the text features practical and up-to-date content written in clear, straightforward language. The authors avoid using court jargon and show rather than tell students about the law with in-text examples, current and interesting cases, and ethical dilemmas. In-text examples immediately illustrate and reinforce the concepts under review. At the end of each chapter, Cases for Review present mini-cases and prompt students to review the facts and make a judgment based on concepts learned in the chapter. Questions and Problems to Discuss test students' comprehension of key chapter topics. Designed specifically for use with the Seventh Edition, the technology program includes a range of instructor and student resources.
Current, jargon free, and filled with many examples, the 8th Edition of BUSINESS LAW: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES covers legal rights and responsibilities in both the public and private sectors. Co-authored by Arnold J. Goldman, a practicing attorney and William D. Sigismond, an experienced business law educator, this clear, straightforward text avoids court jargon and shows rather than tells students about the law using fascinating hypothetical examples and ethics cases. Hypothetical examples immediately follow discussion of concepts to further reinforce understanding. The 8th Edition is updated throughout to reflect recent changes in the law.
