Card & James' Business Law for Business, Accounting & Finance Students

Research output: Book/ReportBook


With faultless accuracy, this text is the most detailed and analytical account of law for those new to the subject. It provides commanding analysis of the English legal system, contract law and tort law together with company law, unfair and illegal commercial practices, the law of the sale of goods, as well as the relevant aspects of employment law. All of this is discussed using relevant examples from the business environment, and the key legal cases to help develop a greater understanding of the interconnections between the law and corporate setting. The new learning features which have been incorporated throughout make a difficult subject more accessible and support study; key case, example, and discussion boxes demonstrate the application of law and highlight core principles, whilst self-test questions allow students to assess their progress. Definition boxes are used throughout the text to provide students with simple definitions of legal words and phrases. A glossary of all legal words and phrases used is also provided. Annotated additional reading lists are provided and links to relevant casenotes and articles are provided for seminal cases. Online Resource Centre The accompanying Online Resource Centre provides a wealth of resources for students to further develop their understanding and test their knowledge, including additional practice questions with answers, over 300 multiple choice questions, a flashcard glossary of key legal terms and quarterly audio updates. Bonus chapters on Business Ethics, Corporate Governance and Consumer Credit are available online. There are also copies of all of the diagrams used in the textbook and audio discussions of the top 10 key exam topics which you can download onto your iPod or MP3 player. In addition, PowerPoint slides are provided for each chapter that serve to break down the basic structure of each chapter.
