Alix Adams' market-leading Law for Business Students is a firm favourite with business students for explaining the law in a jargon-free, engaging style and exploring the law firmly within the business world in which it operates.

The text follows a six-part structure, beginning with an introduction to the study of law for those new to the subject, and then outlining each major area of legal concern in business including contracts and sales, liability, employment, corporate organisation and intellectual property.

This eighth edition has been fully updated to reflect all major changes and developments in the law. Catering for a range of learning styles, Law for Business Students clearly outlines the main legal rules and cases. It uses business examples and topical news stories to reinforce understanding and demonstrate the practical application of the law.

A broad variety of end-of-chapter resources ensures that you understand the key terms and issues covered in the chapter and gives you an opportunity to apply your knowledge in questions and activities relating to each topic. The full-colour page design clearly identifies each learning feature to help you get the most out of your study.
