9780538473514: Law and Ethics in the Business Environment (South-Western Legal Studies in Business Academic)

Blending theory with real-life applications, the 7th Edition of LAW AND ETHICS IN THE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT presents modern issues and the latest in case law for an exciting and thought-provoking text. Rather than shying away from controversial topics, it encourages lively classroom debate on everything from privacy and workers' rights to diversity and stereotyping. Insightful cases, end-of-chapter questions, historical quotes, and chapter projects sharpen critical thinking skills, while a wealth of interactive assignments like role plays, mock trials, roundtables, and more prepare you for the ethical and legal dilemmas of the business world.

About the Author:

Terry Halbert is Professor of Legal Studies at Temple University's Fox School of Business & Management. Her research and teaching is interdisciplinary, focusing on business ethics and public policy concerns. Professor Halbert has developed industry-specific courses on the tobacco industry and on gambling in which students take up each issue from several perspectives: history, sociology, law, ethics, economics, race/class/gender, literature, and film. She has served as a staff editor for the AMERICAN BUSINESS LAW JOURNAL since 1995 and is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar. In 1999, she received Temple's Great Teacher award. A believer in experiential learning, Professor Halbert teaches an Executive MBA course in which managers discuss and analyze the ethical dilemmas they face at work. She earned her JD from Rutgers University, Camden.

Elaine Ingulli is Professor of Business Law at Richard A. Stockton College of New Jersey and a member of the Pennsylvania and New York Bars. Professor Ingulli teaches courses in business law, the legal environment, and international business law, as well as in sex discrimination and women's studies. She is the author of numerous journal articles and a cofounder of the Feminist Legal Studies Section of the Academy of Legal Studies in Business. Professor Ingulli is active in women's and environmental issues. She earned her JD from Hofstra University.

Review:

"What I do NOT like about the other textbooks is that they are more "red-eye" type telling about the ethical concern and not requiring critical thinking on the part of the student to determine what is "ethical and moral" in the legal context. For example, all of the other texts tend to show "employment-at-will" with the boss being able to fire the employee with or without cause as being unethical. However, in your text, you present both sides of the legal doctrine with the employer's side being presented also. This is something that the students have never even thought about. Because of the format of this Textbook, I am able to engage the students in a lot of critical thinking on subjects of legal and ethical interest to all of them. For instance, most students have never heard the other side to things like Affirmative Action. This causes the students to begin thinking not only in the classroom but in their current and future jobs. Because of this, my course in Business Ethics with your textbook is often rated one of the most interesting and most useful course students have taken in their college life. I also get calls often from former students that have run into an ethical/legal issue in their current work that we have covered. They want to refresh their knowledge of what they learned. Therefore, your current textbook is having an impact on students in real-life situations."

"I found the Instructor's Manual invaluable. The introductory tips helped me "break the ice" more effectively, and the sources and background (especially to the cases) saved me many, many hours of additional work while making me better prepared to anticipate and answer questions about the course content."
