About

Overview

THE LEGAL ENVIRONMENT OF BUSINESS is the #1 text for this course--setting the standard by delivering comprehensive, authoritative, and cutting-edge coverage in an interesting and accessible format. Its recipe for success includes the same black letter law flavor as its market-leading counterpart, BUSINESS LAW by Clarkson, Miller, and Cross, but with a specific focus on current topics such as ethics, government regulation, and administrative law. The cases, content, and features of the exciting new ninth edition have been thoroughly updated to represent the latest developments in the business law environment. An excellent assortment of 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. The ninth edition offers an unmatched range of digital solutions, including MindTap™ and CengageNOW to engage and prepare students online. It's no wonder THE LEGAL ENVIRONMENT OF BUSINESS is used by more colleges and universities than any other legal environment text.

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.
