Mayer, Warner, Siedel and Lieberman's Business Law and the Legal Environment is an up-to-date textbook with comprehensive coverage of legal and regulatory issues — and organized to permit instructors to tailor the materials to their particular approach. The authors take special care to engage students by relating law to everyday events with which they are already familiar with their clear, concise and readable style.
Business Law and the Legal Environment provides students with context and essential concepts across the entire range of legal issues with which managers and business executives must grapple. The texts provide the vocabulary and legal acumen necessary for business people to talk in an educated way to their customers, employees, suppliers, government officials — and to their own lawyers.
Business Law and the Legal Environment was also written to solve a problem that many professors have with traditional business law textbooks. The text selection process for business law can be confusing because of the huge array of publications, and as you have most likely experienced, once you select a text you still might have to customize the text to meet your needs. For example, You might prefer to combine case summaries with a few excerpted cases so that students can experience reading original material, but many traditional books do not include both case summaries and excerpted cases. In the case of Business Law and the Legal Environment, the authors have created a text that not only has both case summaries and excerpted cases, but one that you can easily customize by deleting chapters, reordering the content, adding your own material, and even editing at the line level with Flat World's easy-to-use MIYO (Make It Your Own) Platform.
Finally, the online version of Business Law and the Legal Environment boasts embedded links to law-related videos at YouTube and other online sites for easy access by students and instructors.
