  • Insightful Illustrations: The text includes more than 220 classroom-tested figures, diagrams, charts, tables, and chapter summaries. The figures and diagrams help students conceptualize the many abstract concepts in the law. Charts and tables summarize prior discussions as well as help illustrate relationships among legal rules. In addition, each chapter has a summary in the form of an annotated outline of the entire chapter, including key terms.
  • Applying the Law: Teach your students how to effectively apply legal reasoning to cases and legal issues using the Issue, Rule, Application and Conclusion (IRAC) method. Students sharpen their skills as each feature depicts a realistic situation that focuses on a single chapter's concept. The "Applying the Law" feature appears in 14 chapters.
  • Ethics Coverage: At the end of Chapter 2, a series of Business Ethics case studies require students to make the value trade-offs that confront business people in their professional lives. More than half of the chapters also contain an "Ethical Dilemma" feature that presents a managerial situation involving ethical issues. A series of questions leads students to explore the ethical dimensions of each situation. To provide further application of ethics in different business contexts, an ethics question follows many cases. These questions are designed to encourage students to consider the ethical dimensions of the facts in the case or of the legal issue invoked by the facts.
  • Critical Thinking Activities: Guide students in examining legal policies or reasoning surrounding a court's decision and strengthen their analytical skills with Critical Thinking Questions that follow every chapter case. The end-of-chapter Questions, Case Problems, and Taking Sides challenge students to apply chapter concepts to realistic hypothetical and case-based situations. Corresponding answers in the Instructor Manual make it easier to clarify supporting concepts.
  • Practical Advice: Each chapter contains practical advice statements that illustrate how legal concepts can be applied to common business situations.
  • Business Law in Action: Numerous chapters include a "Business Law in Action" scenario that illustrates the application of legal concepts to business situations that commonly arise.
