This highly-regarded text has been completely updated to meet the needs of business students undertaking the introductory study of business law. Renowned for its readability, the fifth edition builds on this reputation with an improved layout, designed to encourage and enhance students' understanding of the essentials of business law.
The robust theory in the text has been supplemented by case studies and newspaper articles,
providing students with a real-life focus and further opportunity for discussion.
The fifth edition contains both new and updated cases, including a number of new cases in the
area of torts. Many of the featured cases are highly topical, for example, Waverley Municipal
Council v Swain, which deals with liability of a public authority for negligence, and includes a
discussion of the 2005 High Court judgment.
This book is specifically for students who are studying business law as part of a business studies course whether the main focus of that course is commerce, accounting, management, human resources or another area of business.
