Managing the Law: The Legal Aspects of Doing Business aims to equip students with the conceptual tools and intellectual skills to identify, assess, and manage the legal risks that arise in the course of doing business. We aim to help students learn how “to think like successful business people.”
Managing the Law: The Legal Aspects of Doing Business provides a thorough and current picture of the legal rules that are relevant in the business world. It does not sacrifice important information for the sake of simplicity. At the same time, however, it does not overwhelm the business student with unnecessary detail or impenetrable jargon. The tone is intelligent and student-friendly. The text is accessible and comprehensible, regardless of the reader’s background.
