Overview

Now you can examine the practical structure and function of the legal system from the perspective of the professional non-lawyer with the popular THE LEGAL ENVIRONMENT OF BUSINESS, 13E. Readable cases summarize background facts and lower court holdings. Case decisions appear in the words of the court itself but are edited to include only key issues relevant to understanding the legal reasoning. In addition to reviewing the structure of today’s legal system, the book places strong emphasis on the nuts and bolts of legal rules that directly impact business today. Clear, concise coverage of a wide range of topics introduces critical points of law using business-specific examples and realistic scenarios. The authors’ readable style complements their extensive knowledge of domestic and international business to make this a favorite among students, like you. To complement this edition, MindTap online solution is available to help you prepare for this course.
