Overview

ANDERSON'S BUSINESS LAW AND THE LEGAL ENVIRONMENT, STANDARD VOLUME, is a briefer version of the business law market's #1 summarized case text (does not include the parent book's Parts 7 & 8 on Business Organizations and Real Property). Updated throughout, the 22nd Edition of this time-tested and proven text presents exceptionally clear discussions of law at the right level of detail for the typical undergraduate student−offering the comprehensive coverage you require without overwhelming students with unnecessary detail. Based on the extensive teaching experience of the authors, this text offers an incredible wealth of integrated examples and applications that feature current events and familiar situations to help students grasp critical legal concepts, as well as clear and thorough guidance in helping students prepare for the CPA exam. In addition to the book's feature boxes and case summaries, numerous brief examples and applications are marked "For Example" so students can easily find them as they progress through each chapter's narrative. The new edition will offer CourseMate and CengageNOW as optional digital solutions that engage students and help prepare them for class.

  • Effective in-text study tools include a consistently organized outline format for each chapter heading (helping students better organize and retain the content as they read) and "Thinking Things Through" sections that help them apply the law they have learned from the chapter narrative and summarized cases to other cases that vary slightly from the summarized cases in the chapters. With these problems built into the reading, students have the chance to really think through what they have just read and studied with regard to the law presented in that chapter.
  • "Ethics & the Law" vignettes are integrated throughout each chapter and are accompanied by questions that encourage students to think critically about ethical issues facing well-known corporations and public figures in actual business dilemmas.
  • "Sports and Entertainment Law" features apply business law.
  • "LawFlix" features connect business law concepts to feature films—so students begin noticing examples of business law concepts in every film they see. The videos can be found within the Digital Video Library, CengageNOW and CourseMate.
  • CPA icons are located in the margins throughout the book to help students know what is covered on the test.

FOR INSTRUCTORS

Student Guide to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act

ISBN: 9780324827194
Enron was once the seventh-largest company on the Fortune 500. Yet, in the wake of revelations of accounting irregularities and securities fraud, it became entangled in the greatest business scandal of a generation and was essentially blinked out of existence after declaring bankruptcy. Similar accounting scandals at Global Crossing, Tyco, WorldCom, Adelphia, HealthSouth, and other companies prompted Congress to pass the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) in June 2002. This revolutionary act, which embodies the most significant securities law changes since the original federal securities laws of 1933 and 1934, contains provisions that create a new federal agency, restructure the entire accounting industry, reform Wall Street practices, dramatically alter corporate governance practices here and abroad, and attack insider trading and obstruction of justice. A lot has happened since its passage. The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) has come into being, and the PCAOB and the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) have issued countless rules to implement the SOX's many legislative mandates. This short guide focuses not only on what each part and section of the SOX means but also on what businesses need to know now that is has been implemented.

Student Guide to Sustainabillity, Law, and Ethics

ISBN: 9781285752129

You can assign all or part of this guide to supplement your Cengage textbook to illustrate how our laws occasionally boost, but more often impose barriers to, long-term sustainable planning at both the corporate and national level. The guide provides supplemental materials for Constitutional law, corporate and securities law, torts and contracts, real estate law, and international law and a brief but thorough introductory chapter on sustainability, law, and ethics.
