Business law is studied on a wide variety of courses, where students who have no previous experience of studying law have to deal with subjects as varied as the English legal system, company law and employment law. This updated edition contains additional chapters on sale of goods law, including the changes introduced by the Sale and Supply of Goods Act 1994. In addition, the chapters on torts have been completely rewritten, with an emphasis on negligent misstatement to make them more appropriate to students studying business, accountancy and management. Since it is important that students should be able to measure their progress, each section contains questions and answers for self-testing. In addition, there are a number of examination-style questions, with suggested answers, so that the student should be prepared for the final examination. Helen J. Bond is the co-author of ""SWOT Company Law"". Peter Kay is the author of ""Employment Law Handbook"".
