About

Overview

Comprehensive, authoritative, and student-friendly, longtime market-leader BUSINESS LAW: TEXT AND CASES delivers an ideal blend of classic "black letter law" and cutting-edge coverage of contemporary issues and cases. BUSINESS LAW continues to set the standard for excellence. The text offers a strong student orientation, making the law accessible, interesting, and relevant. The cases, content, and features of the thirteenth edition have been thoroughly updated to represent the latest developments in business law. Cases range from precedent-setting landmarks to important recent decisions. Ethical, global, and corporate themes are integrated throughout. In addition, numerous critical-thinking exercises challenge students to apply knowledge to real-world issues. It is no wonder that BUSINESS LAW is used by more colleges and universities than any other business law text.

Features and Benefits

  • CENGAGENOW: CengageNOW™ is a powerful course management tool that provides control and customization to optimize the student learning experience and produce desired outcomes. CengageNOW™ includes: Interactive book; Auto Graded Homework with the following consistent question types: Chapter Review Worksheets, Brief Hypotheticals, Blueprint Case Problems, Video Questions; Personalized Student Plan with Multimedia Study Tools and Videos; Test Bank; and Reporting and Assessment Options.
  • Reviewing features, found at the end of every chapter, help solidify the students' understanding of the chapter materials. The feature presents a hypothetical scenario and then asks a series of questions that require the students to identify the issues and apply legal concepts.
  • "Debate This" follows each "Reviewing" feature and consists of a brief statement or question concerning the chapter material that can be used to spur lively classroom discussion or small group assignments. It can also be used as a written assignment.
  • The thirteenth edition lives up to this text's strong reputation for outstanding selection and editing of cases, with the return of many classic cases from earlier editions, as well as many new cases and case problems from 2013.
  • In addition to a full chapter on ethics and business decision making, the text includes "Insight Into Ethics" features that are integrated throughout, "Ethical Dimension" questions that conclude many cases, "Focus on Ethics" features that conclude every unit, and "A Question of Ethics" exercises in the end-of-chapter problem sets.
  • Each Insight into (Ethics, E-Commerce, Global, Environment, or Social Media) feature concludes with a critical-thinking question, and a set of Dimensions questions follows each case excerpt, allowing the text to address the AACSB curriculum requirement to explore global, political, ethical, social, environmental, technological, and cultural contexts of business law.
  • 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. Case examples are excerpted (in the language of the court) and have been carefully selected and edited to offer student accessibility and appeal while providing a solid illustration of how courts interpret and apply the law.
  • To enhance students' ability to learn and retain important information about applications of the law to real-world situations, "Impact of Case on Today's Law" features conclude the landmark and classic cases, illustrating the relevance of these cases to modern law, and followed by critical-thinking questions to promote in-depth analysis.
  • 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 a question that guides students' analysis of the case and helps build their legal reasoning skills.
  • "Special Case Analysis" questions, included in selected chapters, guide 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 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.
  • Chapters conclude with hypothetical business scenarios and business case problems that require students to identify the relevant legal issues and apply the legal concepts covered in the chapter, enabling them to review the material effectively while applying it practically.

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.

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.
