This textbook is suitable for the following courses: Legal Environment of Business, Legal Studies in Business, Business Law & Ethics, and Business Law (one semester course).

In writing The Legal and Ethical Environment of Business, the authors have condensed and streamlined the presentation of the key business law topics to ensure that every page is relevant, engaging, and interesting to today’s learners. This highly accessible textbook uses summaries of cases and case excerpts to improve student understanding. Lau and Johnson are focused on getting students to understand the reason for the law rather than just memorizing the law and its key elements.
