New from leading author, Nick James, the fourth edition of Business Law builds on the success of its previous editions with improved coverage of contract and statutory law, problem-based learning modules and more accessible, easy-to-understand language.

This edition provides you with a unique and interesting introduction to business law. Business students need to know more than what the law is; you need to know where to find it; how to read it, how to use it and how it impacts on all areas of business. Business Law will help you develop a greater awareness of the law and its broad application to business and commercial environments.

Delivered as a full colour printed textbook with an interactive eBook code included, this title enables you to master concepts and succeed in assessment by taking the roadblocks out of self-study, with features designed to get the most out of learning. This rich digital resource brings business law to life with media such as videos, running case studies, interactives and ‘In a Nutshell’ revision materials embedded at the point of learning. The problem-based learning modules connect course concepts with real-world legal scenarios, requiring you to apply higher-order thinking skills to solve problems.

Book Features:

  • Real-World Applications: Connects business law concepts with real-world legal scenarios, requiring you to apply higher-order thinking skills to solve problems.
  • Accessible Content: Designed to align with a 12 or 13 week course, it delivers content in more concise, digestible chunks than previous editions, and explains legal terms in an accessible manner.
  • Remove the Roadblocks to Self-Study: The interactive eBook format provides students with scaffolding and feedback at the point-of-learning.
  • Customisable Content: The colour-coded highlights and note-taking application allow you to tag and add your own notes to important content.
  • Trusted Authorship: Know you’re getting the best content from Australia’s leading author Nick James, with improved coverage of contract and statutory law.
