The thirteenth edition of Business Law with UCC Applications updates many key areas of the law. As in previous editions, a great deal of care has been taken to present business law concepts in the most coherent and accessible way and to provide up-to-date coverage of business law topics that are essential to today’s students. All of the chapters for this edition have been updated, and we have continued to enhance our coverage of the important topics of cyber-commerce, international law, identity theft, trade secrets, abandoned property, eminent domain, mortgages, bankruptcy, limited liability companies (LLC), ethics, the Dodd-Frank Act, the new health care act, revised Uniform Partnership Act, the Genetic Information Nondisclosure, the War Powers Act, changes in state law regarding collective bargaining, the proposed changes in patent law, proposed changes in the court system, the War Powers Act, and Alternative Dispute Resolution.
Material is presented in nine sections, which include relevant case studies featuring excerpts from the court's opinion. Content has been updated to reflect the many recent changes in the legal field and color photos throughout the text help students relate the material to their own lives.
