Cases, Materials and Commentary on Law and Business provides readers with a fresh introductory approach to the study of law and business. The book draws together extracts from the principal cases and a selection of articles and legislative provisions that provide explanations of, and insights into the practical application of contract law prinicples.

The commentary places all of the material in an appropriate social, business and legal context, highlighting the salient features of the leading cases and legislation in the main areas of contract and business law. The book is unique in that attnetion is specifically drawn to the recent legislative initiatives and changes in the fields of e-commerce, statutory unconscionable conduct, and professional liability for negligence.

Such initiatives and changes represnet the new developments in contract law and tort law principles and are indicative of trends in current business practice both in Australia and overseas.;The book makes material such as the Explanatory Memorandum to the recently lectronic Transaction Act 1999 (Cth), and the Explanatory Memorandum to the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) readily available to students, legal practitioners and the business community. With regard to these key pieces of legislation, the inclusion of the Memoranda provides context for the legislative direction intended by Parliament.

The inclusion of explanations provided by the Trade Practices Reporter provides a background for the statutory provisions of unconscionable conduct and adds meaning and clarity to these provisions. The authors of this book are experienced law scholars and teachers who have considerable experience in teaching business law to non-law students, and to students from whom English is not their first language.

Cases, Materials and Commentary on Law and Business is designed to be a companion text to law and Business: Text and Tutorials
