Description

The law regulating commercial conduct and commercial relationships is increasingly complex and important. The 7th Edition of Business and the Law has been written to offer business law students a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the Australian legal system and to the major areas of law impacting on business today. It is also a valuable resource for any business professional or small business requiring an intelligent introduction to contemporary business law in Australia.
 
Business and the Law is academically rigorous but also accessible. It includes concise case examples as well as more comprehensive case studies of leading decisions to demonstrate how relevant laws are applied.
 
The 7th Edition includes a chapter on "The Modern Corporation" and all cases, legislation and topical news features have been updated for currency. This edition has been updated by a team of contributors from The University of Sydney Business School.
