Summary

This text provides a concise explanation of the statutory and case law that affects business with the objective of enabling students to use the law as a source for business decision-making. Excellent preparation for CPA exams and numerous critical thinking features are particular strengths of this text. This sixth edition continues the tradition of authoritative, accurate, and up-to-date presentation of the law.

Benefits:

  • NEW! Interactive Quizzes: Found at the Product Support Web site (http://mann.westbuslaw.com) these quizzes are now available to students for self-review.
  • Managerial and Consumer Insights: These features provide managers and consumers legal information relevant to their decision-making.
  • Managerial Ethics Case Studies: The Ethics chapter, Chapter 2, has managerial case studies on business ethics. These classroom tested business cases (rather than court cases) help show the relevance of ethics as it applies to business by requiring students to make the value trade-offs that will confront them in their professional lives.
  • Internet Applications: These end-of-chapter exercises require students to research a certain issue or find a document, then fulfill a critical thinking requirement such as a recommendation or critical comparison of data or information retrieved.
  • Critical Thinking Questions: Each case is followed by critical thinking questions to encourage students to examine the legal policy or reasoning behind the legal principle of the case or to apply it in a real-world context.
  • Ethical Questions: A question follows every case to encourage students to consider the ethical dimensions of the facts in the case or of the legal issue invoked by the facts.
  • Accurate Comprehensive Coverage: This text is widely praised for its accurate and comprehensive coverage of the law.
  • Chapter Summaries: Summaries appear at the end of every chapter to facilitate complete review of the principles covered prior to examining their application in the end-of-chapter problems.
  • NEW! End of Chapter Problems Re-organized: These featured student exercises are separated into hypotheticals and case problems.
  • Law and You: A number of chapters have a listing of Internet addresses for consumer-oriented brochures available on the World Wide Web. These brochures have been prepared by state bar associations, state attorneys, and federal governmental agencies.
  • Internet Resources: Throughout the text, cases, problems, and part openers Internet references provide opportunities for students to explore topics further.
  • Excerpted Cases in the Language of the Court: All of the cases have the facts and decision summarized for clarity, while the opinion is edited to preserve the language of the court. Both landmark and current cases are selected for this new edition.
  • CPA Exam Topics: Portions of the text covering commonly tested areas on the CPA exam are marked to aid students in exam preparation.
  • Practical Advice: Each chapter contains a number of boxed statements which illustrate how legal concepts can be applied to common business situations.
