The study text guides the reader through basic legal principles and how they should be applied within a commercial framework, covering a wide range of legal material in a way that is both coherent and comprehensible.

Presented in a practical and accessible style, this study text incorporates a number of features to support learning:

  • Case study scenarios and questions
  • Test your knowledge review questions
  • Stop and think boxes
  • Case law summaries
  • Case examples
  • Glossary of key terms
