About this book | Table of contents | About the authors | Buy now
Intended as an accessible, concise and inexpensive alternative to currently available textbooks, Getting Started in Business Law by Paul Bates covers the core topics taught at first year undergraduate level to non-specialists taking a business law module as part of their undergraduate studies.

While still providing the student with a rigorous and academic treatment of the topic, this book will weave a path through key concepts of business law exposing the main principles step by step, while keeping the use of case law to a minimum as single cases will be used to explain a number of key points.

The examples used throughout the text will be familiar to the student in their everyday lives, helping to keep the student engaged and aid their understanding of the principles and concepts being presented. Particular attention will be paid to using language which is accessible, and presenting concepts in a style which is undaunting, while still rigorous, and at times light-hearted.

The author has extensive experience of teaching large cohorts of business, accountancy and finance undergraduate students, many of whom are from overseas. This experience is brought to bear to deliver an engaging and accessible resource, offering an alternative to the heavyweight texts which are currently available.

  • An accessible and concise resource that introduces non-specialist students to the key concepts and principles of business law, providing a non-technical alternative to the currently available heavyweight texts
