The Legal Environment of Business, 11th Edition

Book Description

THE LEGAL ENVIRONMENT OF 11th Edition provides a detailed practical introduction to the structure and function of the legal system from the perspective of the professional non-lawyer. Unlike other books it does not get bogged down in the complexities of the law, but tries to focus, in a very straightforward manner, on the core legal concepts most essential for managers to know. Rather than conveying the material in the dry, serious manner of many other legal environment books, the text uses a reader-friendly style and frequent points of humor and levity to make it much easier for the key ideas to come across.
