Summary

For courses in the Legal Environment of Business. Taking a dynamic, and very contemporary approach to Legal Environment of business studies, this text covers introductory topics, private law, and public law, but offers an alternative to the traditional method of case analysis. It emphasizes the importance of incorporating a questioning dimension into legal reasoning, one which involves critical thinking and the consideration of the impact of values (ethics) on the outcome being considered. It outlines an authoritative step-by-step model for critical thinking/ethical analysis, and gives students hands-on opportunities to develop these skills.

The Paula Corbin Jones case and related court rulings.

Better incorporates these materials into the text with a box at the beginning of each chapter to get the students to start thinking critically from the beginning of the chapter. These boxes also direct the critical thinking exercise beyond the scope of the cases.
