Summary

This legal environment text offers balanced coverage of private law and public law. To illustrate the legal points covered, it integrates cases in the language of the court into each chapter. Strong ethical coverage helps students understand the need for responsible decisions.

  • An ETHICS MODEL is introduced in Chapter 2, "Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility."
  • ETHICAL CONSIDERATIONS begin each chapter by asking the reader to respond to an ethical dilemma utilizing the model from Chapter 2.

Many of the cases, except landmark cases, have been shortened and focused on the point of law being discussed. Also, historical context is provided within landmark cases.
