Jeffrey F. Beatty was a two-time winner of the Beckwith Prize, Boston University's highest undergraduate teaching award. His research expertise included constitutional law, torts, contracts, and the uniform commercial code. In 1998, the Academy of Legal Studies in Business (ALSB) awarded him the Charles Hewitt Award for excellence in teaching, presented annually to one professor in the United States. The highest honor for teaching conferred by the ALSB, this award is dedicated to the communication and recognition of creative teaching practices of business law. Prior to his teaching, Professor Beatty worked for several years as a legal aid lawyer, concentrating on immigration law and general civil litigation. He also practiced in a private firm, where he concentrated on general civil litigation, including trials and appeals of tort, contract, employment, and property cases.Review:
"I find the coverage fair and balanced. For example the section about the EPA on page 980 gives the student a good flavor of the practical realities of legislation and enforcement without showing unfair bias. Good job!"
"The text is a top flight law book that should rank within the top three on the market today. Indeed, I would consider adopting the text and making it possible for other business faculty in my department to adopt the text."
"This book is excellent. I have adopted it for my Business Law I classes. This fall I will be teaching Business Law II again for the first time since I adopted this text for Business Law I. After serious consideration, I adopted the text for my Business Law II class. I realized that I would miss it too much if I did not use it! I am sure my students will be glad too - and not just because 'they already have the book.' I can tell my students enjoy this text."
"Our students do not come to class prepared to analyze a legal situation in a sequential fashion. This is a great way for them to learn to look for several issues and analyze them separately. It would be great preparation for the rigor of an essay exam. This feature is a great step forward."
"The "Exam Strategy" content is a phenomenal addition to the text. It provides students with a concise method for comprehending the covered concepts found in each chapter. They will be an excellent asset to my students as they prepare for their tests."
