Business Law

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2018 - Business law - 695 pages
Do your students struggle to engage with legal topics? Look no further than Marson & Ferris' Business Law to help them actively engage with the law, understand it, and approach it with confidence.

Written with business, management, and finance and accounting students in mind, the authors put the law into a context that they can easily understand by introducing case studies in every chapter. These 'Business Scenarios' help the students contextualize the law by presenting the reader with an example of an everyday problem which demonstrates how the law can affect a company, employer, employee, or civilian.

Throughout each chapter the students are asked to pause and consider how the content applies to these routine business problems, enabling them to become active readers and think independently about how the law operates.

The first chapter provides a helpful guide to studying the law and advice on how to excel in assessments so that they can fulfil their potential. This chapter includes a sample problem question and model answer. Further sample problem and essay questions can be found at the end of chapters, giving readers an opportunity to test their understanding and practise for assessments. Students will be able to find indicative answers to these questions hosted with the online resources for this book.

At the end of each chapter the authors provide further reading suggestions to guide students that want to deepen their knowledge, including well-maintained and trusted websites, Twitter feeds, and YouTube channels in addition to suitable books and articles.
