Professor Marianne Jennings, J.D. served as a professor of legal and ethical studies in business in the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University (ASU) for almost four decades. She has been an emeritus professor since 2015.

She continues to teach graduate courses in business ethics and ethical culture at ASU and other colleges around the country. She is an instructor and mentor for Wiley’s CPAExcel review course. Professor Jennings has written hundreds of articles in academic, professional and trade journals. Emerald Management Review named her article, "Ethics and Investment Management," one of the top 50 articles in 2005. She was also named a Top 100 Thought Leader by Trust Across America and one of the 100 Most Influential People in Business Ethics by Ethisphere. Professor Jennings is a contributing editor for Ethikos and the Real Estate Law Journal. She has six textbooks and monographs in circulation, including BUSINESS ETHICS and REAL ESTATE LAW in addition to BUSINESS: ITS LEGAL, ETHICAL, AND GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT. Her SEVEN SIGNS OF ETHICAL COLLAPSE is used as an audit tool and a primer on corporate culture.

  • Up-to-the-Minute Examples: The text's innovative KnowNow blog offers hundreds of current examples and pending cases to pique student interest and get students discussing and applying the law to real-world cases.
  • Updated Features and Problems: Each chapter contains at least one new end-of-chapter Problem as well as a new "Consider…" or "Ethical Issue" feature. Examples include Lance Armstrong's rationalizations about why he continued to cheat, ethical issues on films such as "The Wolf of Wall Street," legal issues with an Oscar-winning director concerned about government requests for information about her film "Zero Dark Thirty," a KPMG partner who passed along information about audit clients to a friend so that the friend could trade on the clients' stock before the information became public, and Courtney Love's libel suit for her Twitter remarks about a dress designer.
  • End-of-Chapter Review Questions: Every chapter now ends with all-new multiple-choice review questions. Offering five to ten questions, these short quizzes allow students to check how well they have read and understood chapter material. Answers are provided at the end of the quiz. Questions are structured to walk students through each major topic in the chapter so that they can easily refer back to a section and review the material. Some questions are simply knowledge review, but many include factual scenarios that require application skills.
  • Chapter 6, "International Law," includes a new emphasis on money laundering and international banking issues.
  • Updated Law: The third edition's coverage of updates to the law includes the addition of Dodd-Frank materials in the securities law sections and consumer credit discussions; provisions of the JOBS Act; the Supreme Court's evolution on Commerce Clause issues, new decisions on affirmative action, and the right of a corporation to challenge a law on the basis of its owners' religious beliefs; and changes in the 1933 Securities Act primary offering and registration section to reflect changes made to allow businesses to raise capital more easily.
  • "Ethical Issues" features integrate situational ethics to develop students' internal ethical compass by challenging them to consider what they would do in a variety of difficult business ethics situations.
  • Carefully selected cases immediately draw students in with a catchy one-line introduction that provides a quick synopsis of the legal and ethical topics at hand. Detailed yet succinct, the cases are one to two pages in length.
  • Presented in an easy-to-understand "think/apply/answer" format, Critical Thinking Applications encourage students to analyze the legal and ethical material discussed in the text.
  • End-of-chapter "Red Flags for Managers" outline the most critical legal issues that students need to know when they enter the business world--giving them valuable insight into real-world practice.
  • Useful "Business Planning Tips" appear in the margins to help students build a solid bridge between law and business.
