Law for Business Students is the popular textbook for introducing legal concepts to non-law students in a practical, engaging way through real-life cases relevant to the business world.

A clear explanation of the study of law and study skills leads into the main core topics of law: contract (including intellectual property), tort, employment and business organisations (including formation), governance and dissolution. The book also includes a range of features to aid understanding, applying and analysing legal concepts:

- Scenarios - to encourage development of opinions and application of relevant legal concepts.

- Worth thinking about - discussion points to analyse within the classroom.

- Exam tips - pointing to areas of the law which are ripe for questions in an exam, to help revision practice.

- Chapter summaries - to reinforce learning of key concepts.

- Key terms - highlighted in margin notes.

- Review questions with answers - self-test questions and worked exam examples to consolidate knowledge, encouraging students to apply the law and boost confidence.

- Advanced questions - to challenge students in developing knowledge of the law.

This 12th edition has been fully updated and also provides restructured coverage of negligence, with dedicated chapters covering negligence and special duty situations and product liability. Clear and concise, it provides accessible coverage of the fundamental legal principles and an understanding of the practical application of the law to the business environment.

Systemvoraussetzungen:

Computer (Windows; MacOS X; Linux): Installieren Sie bereits vor dem Download die kostenlose Software Adobe Digital Editions (siehe E-Book Hilfe).

Tablet/Smartphone (Android; iOS): Installieren Sie bereits vor dem Download die kostenlose App Adobe Digital Editions (siehe E-Book Hilfe).

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.

Bitte beachten Sie bei der Verwendung der Lese-Software Adobe Digital Editions: wir empfehlen Ihnen unbedingt nach Installation der Lese-Software diese mit Ihrer persönlichen Adobe-ID zu autorisieren!
