Card & James' Business Law is the most detailed and analytical account of business law for those new to the subject. It provides commanding analysis of the English legal system, contract law, tort law, and commercial law together with coverage of company law, and 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.
