Written by two experts in the field, Business Law provides practical, up-to-date coverage of company, partnership, taxation and insolvency law, plus all relevant aspects of EU law. The manual provides all of the relevant material students need to understand the latest legal developments affecting business law transactions. Coverage of the Companies Act 2006 is fully integrated and given prominence, mirroring the emphasis that business law courses place on this central piece of legislation. Additional emphasis has been placed on taxation and business accounts. Examples are used throughout the manual enabling students to contextualise their learning effectively. Extensive and updated statutory references allow students both to cross-reference to appropriate primary sources, and to use the guide to interpret such sources.

The book's depth of coverage, accessible format and clear structure make it an ideal reference for students on the Legal Practice Course. Online Resources A free Online Resource Centre provides a range of student learning activities which guide students through scenarios based on topics in the book. Additional chapters on Competition Law in the European Union and the United Kingdom, The Right of Establishment, the Right to Provide Services, and the Free Movement of Goods, and Business Contracts-Agency or Distributorship Agreements are also featured.
