MacIntyre’s Business Law is the foremost text for non-law students. Questions test their understanding at each stage, key points guide their learning and tasks allow them to relate and apply what they have learned to business examples. All of these features are highlighted in full colour to ease navigation and understanding. In addition, new bulleted chapter introductions help students to break down each area of the law into manageable sections allowing them to fully grasp all aspects of business law confidently.
