"Concepts in context." It's an approach unique among business law textbooks and one of the main reasons Beatty and Samuelson's BUSINESS LAW AND THE LEGAL ENVIRONMENT is so successful in the classroom. From the very first chapter, the authors' superb writing fascinates, drawing students into the concepts of business law within the context of vivid examples and memorable scenarios. Throughout, provocative questions encourage students to reflect about what they are reading-teaching by example using activities that foster active learning and show students how to think through issues from a lawyer's perspective. No other text is as effective at helping students learn how to apply concepts and contexts to their practice, and in teaching them why business law matters not only to their careers but also to their daily lives.

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.

"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."
