New to this edition

New features and content incorporated into Business Law to demonstrate the application of law and government regulation to the business environment include:

  • The citation for Australian cases, where possible, is in report-neutral form. The reference to where the case may be found is not cited to a law report but rather to where it can be accessed online.
  • Topic coverage has been increased in a number of areas to reflect changing needs in student understanding of how the law interfaces and interacts with business.
  • All cases now contain a Comments section setting out points to note about the case and putting it into a context that will help to give business students a better understanding of where a legal principle might perhaps have emanated from or how it applies to a particular fact situation.
  • All cases contain a Reflection question asking students to think about the case and the decision, and to reflect on its importance and application to business.


Features & benefits
  • Learning objectives are stated at the beginning of the chapter. They provide an excellent framework and revision tool.
  • In brief boxes summarise key points relevant to the particular area of law under discussion.
  • Business tips and risk management alerts identify areas of the law that people in business need to be alert to or aware of.
  • Questions feature throughout the book to try to focus students on what they are about to read and, perhaps more importantly, why.
  • Boxed cases that are broken up into a number of parts, to make them user-friendly as possible and are integrated into the text
  • Review questions provide an opportunity for students to test their understanding of key concepts and issues as they arise in a chapter, and also serve as a quick revision.
  • At the end of every chapter, there is material to engage, challenge, and test students’ understanding of the area covered in the chapter. This includes key points, key terms, and tutorial questions.
