No other text conveys such a passion for this profoundly important discipline. Delivering the material in their signature engaging style, the authors pepper their writing with a focus on human conflict that illustrates business law from the lawyer's perspective. While more brief than the traditional business law text, ESSENTIALS OF BUSINESS LAW, 4TH Edition provides solid coverage of the core topics, especially contracts, and meets all AACSB curriculum standards.
