Based on the longtime market-leader BUSINESS LAW: TEXT AND CASES by Clarkson/Miller/Cross, this paperback text offers an affordable solution for those looking for a concise one-semester text that offers in-depth treatment of today’s business law topics. Designed for the contemporary one-semester course, BUSINESS LAW: TEXT AND CASES--AN ACCELERATED COURSE provides the rigor and seriousness of a classic black-letter law text with a brief nineteen-chapter table of contents.

The text combines the benefits of a black-letter law approach with a strong student orientation, making the law accessible, interesting, and relevant for readers. An excellent assortment of included cases range from precedent-setting landmarks to important recent decisions, and ethical, global, e-commerce, digital, and corporate themes are integrated throughout this edition. In addition, numerous critical-thinking exercises challenge students to apply what they have learned to real-world issues.
