Business Law and the Legal Environment
Don Mayer, Daniel Warner, George Siedel, and Jethro K. Lieberman
In writing Business Law and the Legal Environment, all four authors joined together with simple and clear goals:
- To provide students with context and essential concepts across the entire range of legal issues with which managers and business executives must grapple
- To supply students with an extensive coverage of cases in each chapter, demonstrating the concepts of law discussed therein, followed by case questions.
- To supply students with the vocabulary and legal acumen necessary for business people to speak in an educated way with customers, employees, suppliers, government officials — and to their own lawyers
- To encourage students to see national borders as bridges, not barriers
- To provide students with progressive and comprehensive coverage of the principles of international business.
- INTERACTIVE FEATURES:
NOTE: Due to the page count of this textbook, we will ship copies of the textbook in a two-volume set.
This textbook is suitable for these courses: Business Law, Legal Studies
This textbook is suitable for 2 and 4 year institutions.
This text is organized in a straightforward and logical manner, developing information throughout five different sections.
The text selection process for business law can be confusing because of the huge array of publications and the lack of flexibility in tailoring textbooks to your course. Business Law and the Legal Environment, not only has both case summaries and excerpted cases, but the option to easily customize it by deleting chapters, reordering content, adding your own material, or even editing at the line level.
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.

WHAT'S NEW IN VERSION 2.0? This 2.0 version reflects changes in the law as relevant. For example, there are updated sections on some aspects of commercial paper and banking (regarding computer “apps” that make possible instantaneous deposits and withdrawals from bank accounts); and there is a new section presenting regulations affecting consumer credit transactions (the federal Consumer Finance Protection Agency). This version combines two previous chapters on labor law and employment law into one chapter. A new chapter on accountants’ professional liability has been added. The Instructor’s Manuals have been updated and improved. Many cases are briefed the “old fashioned way”: facts, procedure, issue, holding, reason. We hope this makes it easier for instructors to read the briefs themselves. And the Manuals also include some tips for teaching the material garnered from authors’ own use of the text: where do students have problems? What is useful to mention in Chapter 8, for example, that students will encounter again in Chapter 17? PowerPoint slides have also been updated and improved, as have the test file questions.
