The objective of Contemporary Canadian Business Law is to inform and educate business law students who will need to identify when legal advice may be required. Willes is relevant to business students through the inclusion of pedagogical elements such as Case in Point, Business Law in practice, Front Page Law boxes and Rights, Wrongs and Ethic...show mores boxes. New features are shaded examples within the text, checklists and “Business Ventures in Quebec” boxes. These boxes illustrate how legal outcomes can be significantly different in Quebec. The Landmark Cases have now been integrated into the text as “Court Decisions”. The focus of many Canadian Business Law courses is to provide students with an understanding of the dynamic legal system and the issues relevant to doing business in Canada. The improvements to this edition enhance currency, accuracy and readability of the material.
