The work continues to provide both students and practitioners with a useful guide through the various principles which together constitute aEURO business lawaEURO . aEURO| Given the diversity of topics covered, the text cannot not does it purport to be a treatise on each of those topics. This does not, however, in any way diminish its usefulness. Antony Lo Surdo, Australian Banking & FInance Law Bulletin, Nov/Dec 2004 The bookaEURO (TM)s greatest strengths are its clear, unaffected language and logical structure. Its analyses of legal principles and legislation are concise, and whenever possible, free of convoluted legal language. Business Law is eminently readable, but without sacrificing accuracy. aEURO| The emphasis on contract law makes Business Law invaluable for people involved in business and commerce. I suspect that, in some cases, a quick read through the relevant chapter of Business Law may provide a layperson with enough information to negate the need to speak with their solicitor. aEURO| The chapter entitled aEURO Judge-made Law and Statute LawaEURO and its discussion of common law, equity and statute law is, perhaps, the clearest and most concise treatment of the sources of Australian law that I have read. With its concise and accessible language, underpinned by some thorough research, it is easy to see why Business Law is currently in its 12th edition. Rocco Cecere, Ethos (ACT Law Society), Dec 2004 It hardly seems 18 months has passed since I reviewed the 11th edition of this well-known and excellent publication. The 11th edition is testimony to the number of times that I have referred to it as it sits on my bookshelf, slightly off centre, and looks well used. aEURO| Over the years I have referred this book to many such people, particularly company executives and the like and have, on several occasions, loaned my copy for them to have the opportunity to consider. By so doing, I thought they would instantly see its value and purchase their own copy. Most have done, which confirms my thoughts of the real value of it. If you are not familiar with this book, then I would be surprised. It covers areas such as the law of Torts, Criminal law, Contract law and its ingredients, mistake, innocent and fraudulent misrepresentation, illegality, inequality as between the parties to a contract, breaches and, to use a term brought from America, Anticipatory breaches, Sale of Goods, Principal and Agent, Trusts, Succession, Intellectual Property, Consumer Credit law and the Trade Practices Acts (Cwlth), Insurance Law, Credit law, Bankruptcy, Banking and Bills of Exchange, not to forget Company law. Thus, no matter what the field in which you practice, there must be times when the greatest favour you can do to a client, is to point them towards Gillies, encourage them to have it in their Boardroom or library and more importantly, to take the time to read it!
