Business in the Contemporary Legal Environment is a well-written, comprehensive coursebook providing complete coverage of the areas typically included in a one-semester legal environment course. This user-friendly text is written in a less formal style, avoiding "black letter law" statements whenever possible, and uses a combination of classic and contemporary cases to clearly illustrate the law. Every chapter begins with a Classic Case, a case from the past that helped to set the precedents for the material covered in the chapter. The authors then conclude each chapter with a Contemporary Case, a recent decision that shows a current application of one of the principles discussed in the chapter. In addition, helpful discussion questions and "You Decide" hypotheticals are included at the end of each chapter for further emphasis, as well as well-designed exhibits throughout the book, which help make the concepts easier to understand.
