Current, jargon free, and filled with many examples, the 8th Edition of BUSINESS LAW: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES covers legal rights and responsibilities in both the public and private sectors. Co-authored by Arnold J. Goldman, a practicing attorney and William D. Sigismond, a veteran business law educator, this clear, straightforward text avoids court jargon and shows rather than tells students about the law using fascinating cases and ethical dilemmas. Hypothetical examples immediately follow discussion of concepts to further reinforce understanding. The 8th Edition is updated throughout to reflect recent changes in the law.
