The best way to understand legal concepts is through hands-on application, and with Beatty and Samuelson's exciting new edition of BUSINESS LAW AND THE LEGAL ENVIRONMENT, students get plenty of practice with active learning features and practical exercises. Today's students are given personal experience applying the law to real-life issues throughout the text, equipping future business leaders with the knowledge and tools to anticipate the challenges that await them. From the very first chapter, the authors' superb writing fascinates, drawing students into the concepts of business law within the context of vivid examples and memorable scenarios. No other text is as effective at helping students learn how to apply concepts and contexts to their practice, and in teaching them why business law matters not only to their careers but also to their daily lives.
