Card and James' Business Law is the most detailed account of business law, providing commanding analysis of the English legal system, contract law, the law of tort, employment law, and partnership and company law.

Discussion of the core elements is supplemented with learning features which have been integrated throughout to support study and make the subject more accessible.

Relevant examples from the business environment and the key legal cases are presented to help students build a greater understanding of the interconnections between the law and the corporate setting. Chapter introductions and summaries help students identify the salient points of each chapter, while self-test questions allow students to reinforce understanding.

The book is accompanied by a collection of online resources to help students approach assessments with confidence: including supplementary problem and essay questions, multiple choice questions with instant feedback, and revision summaries.
