The law regulating commercial conduct and commercial relationships is increasingly complex and important. The sixth edition of Business and the Law has been written to offer business law students a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the Australian legal system and to the major areas of law impacting on business today. It is also a valuable resource for any business professional or small business requiring an intelligent introduction to contemporary business law in Australia.

This new edition of this established and respected text has been substantially restructured and revised to incorporate significant legislative and common law developments. It includes a new chapter addressing contracts in business, which builds on the foundational contracts chapter. Recent developments relating to the Australian Consumer Law are discussed, including the extension of the consumer unfair contract terms law to small business, as are the recommendations of the Harper Competition Policy Review.

Business and the Law is academically rigorous but also accessible. It includes concise case examples as well as more comprehensive case studies of leading decisions to demonstrate how relevant laws are applied. Media items are liberally used to illustrate the relevance and application of business law to contemporary business.

Business and the Law, 6th Edition addresses the legal environment for business; the structures, transactions and relationships through which business is conducted; and the regulation of business in Australia. It addresses issues of real significance to each of Australia’s two million businesses – not only the very small percentage of large firms, but the medium, small and micro enterprises which comprise the vast majority. This book is a sensible investment for each of these businesses, as well as being a highly useful student text.
