The law is one of the elements of the external business environment that every business has to work within. Those who run businesses may not like the law, but they need to know what it is in order to comply with it, otherwise there can be undesirable consequences, such as fines for breaches of criminal law and damages claims where harm results to the public. Commercial Law in a Global Context is a clear and insightful text which puts Scottish law in a global context. It explains the relevance of Scots law to those whose main specialism is not law, and gives practical advice and straightforward, jargon-free explanations of concepts, as well as how to study and write about commercial law.

This text explores the place of Scots law in the families of legal systems, and includes two chapters that focus on the legal systems of the United Arab Emirates and Malaysia, which are examples of the two main legal traditions: civil law and common law. A sound knowledge of commercial (or business) law is very important, as companies may face potential liabilities under criminal law and civil law if they are do not pay attention to their company’s legal position.

This essential text covers the most important aspects of the subject, and focuses on the practical aspects of the subject rather than theoretical concepts.

To help support their learning, readers have access to a range of online resources including chapter-by-chapter multiple choice questions which will enable them to assess how well they have grasped individual chapters. The text also features a range of supplementary readings, in text exercises and cases/examples to help bring concepts to life. Visit www.goodfellowpublishers.com/commlaw for details.
