Features and Benefits

  • Case Treatment: Summarized cases facilitate understanding. Each case presents the Facts, Issue, Decision, Reason, and Critical Thinking Questions that are designed to show students why the elements in the case are important to them. Selected cases conclude with "Why Is This Case Important to Business?" features to draw attention to how the legal concept impacts business. Highlighted Classic Cases: Special emphasis is given to Classic cases by setting them off with a special heading and logo. They include an "Impact of This Case on Today's Law" section that stresses how important the court's decision has been to the evolution of the law and why it is still relevant to businesspersons. Unit-Ending Case Study: A Unit Case Study with Dissenting Opinion is featured at the end of each text unit, highlighting a recent court case relating to one of the unit's topics. They present the Case Background, Majority Opinion, Dissenting Opinion, and conclude with Questions for Analysis.
  • Critical Thinking: Critical thinking questions that require the students to think critically about some topic discussed in the chapter conclude the in-text features (including the photo captions). Plus, selected cases include a "What If the Facts Were Different?" section that asks students how the decision might be different if the fact pattern was different. Addtionally, the problem set for each chapter includes two types of "Critical Thinking and Writing Assignments for Business"--"Business Law Writing" and "Business Law Critical Thinking Group Assignments."
  • Global Perspective: "Beyond Our Border" sections cover a broad array of topics that relate to the international business environment in more depth.
  • Application Rich: The text contains an abundance of applications including "Applications", "Linking", "Application to Today's World", and "Preventing Legal Disputes". Found in approximately half of the chapters, "Applications" offers practical advice on ways to navigate the legal waters of the business environment. Each "Application" concludes with a checklist on how to avoid legal problems. The remaining chapters conclude with the "Linking" feature, which applies business law to other business disciplines. Also, included in many of the chapters, "Landmark in the Law" explores a landmark case, statute, or other law that has had a significant impact on business law. It concludes with a section titled "Application to Today's World" that clarifies for students why the case is important to business today. "Preventing Legal Disputes", which are integrated throughout the text, provide practical guidance for businesspersons on how to avoid legal disputes.
  • Ethical Issues: Integrated throughout the text, Ethical Issues features address ethical dilemmas related to the chapter topic. Included at the end of the chapter, "A Question of Ethics" questions ask students to look at both the legal and ethical issues revolving around hypothetical situations. Also, the ethics chapter is completely revised. While it retains the philosophical schools material, it now focuses more on business.
  • Chapter Review and Case Analysis: Use the chapter concluding "Reviewing ..." feature to help students solidify their understanding of the chapter materials. Also, to help students grasp some of the more difficult legal topics, Concept Summaries are integrated throughout the text. Found at the end of selected chapters, a case analysis assignment asks students to brief cases. End of chapter assignments can also be used for assessing student comprehension.
  • Highlighted and Numbered Case Examples: To provide more case examples to illustrate legal concepts, numbered "Case Examples" are integrated throughout the text along with the numbered hypothetical "Examples".

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.
