About The Solution

Overview

Comprehensive, authoritative, and student-friendly, longtime market-leader BUSINESS LAW: TEXT AND CASES—LEGAL, ETHICAL, GLOBAL, AND CORPORATE ENVIRONMENT delivers an ideal blend of classic “black letter law” and cutting-edge coverage of contemporary issues and cases. The first text to implement an undergraduate-oriented pedagogy with traditional law school-like content, BUSINESS LAW continues to set the standard for excellence. The text combines the benefits of a black letter law approach with a strong student orientation, making the law accessible, interesting, and relevant for readers. The cases, content, and features of the Twelfth Edition have been thoroughly updated to represent the latest developments in business law. An excellent assortment of included cases ranges from precedent-setting landmarks to important recent decisions, and ethical, global, and corporate themes are integrated throughout. In addition, numerous critical-thinking exercises challenge students to apply what they've learned to real-world issues, and the text offers an unmatched range of support materials—including innovative online teaching and learning resources. It's no wonder that BUSINESS LAW is used by more colleges and universities than any other business law text.

  • BUSINESS LAW offers an effective mix of classic and landmark cases, with recent cases on key topics that not only provide modern examples of business law, but also strongly interest today’s students.

  • A lengthy Extended Case excerpt, presented entirely in the language of the court, is included in every chapter to enhance students' ability to identify the legal principles and issues faced by today's businesses. The excerpts are suitable for case-briefing assignments and conclude with two questions that guide students' analysis of the case and help build their legal reasoning skills.
  • One Special Case Analysis question per unit guides students through the IRAQ process in analyzing one of the Extended Cases, and end-of-chapter material includes a Question and a Case Problem with a Sample Answer, available in an appendix within the text or on the Companion Web Site) to provide students with a comparison for their own answers and an example of what to include when answering case problems.
  • Selected cases conclude with What If the Facts Were Different? questions that alter the facts of the case and ask the student to decide if the same ruling would result, while Debate This sections at the end of the Reviewing features also encourage critical thinking and more thoughtful analysis.

Student Guide to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act  (ISBN-10: 0324827199 | ISBN-13: 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.
