Managing the Law differs from other texts on the market in two important ways. First, it is a text for business students, not law students. Managing the Law 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.
