Summary

This best-selling comprehensive book integrates excerpted (edited) cases in a student accessible format. All legal terms are defined when first introduced. To aid the reader in putting the cases in context and to address some of the AACSB requirements, most cases begin with either a Historical Setting or a Company Profile. This text meets all AACSB curriculum standards, and addresses all business law topics covered on the CPA exam. Also, for those that plan to take the CPA exam, there is an additional CPA supplement. To make it easier to pull together the wide array of supplements from which to select, we offer an Instructor's Course Planning Guide. This text is also available in an Interactive CD-ROM Edition. The CD-ROM can be used either as a stand alone item or in conjunction with the text. Along with inclusion of the entire text, the CD-ROM includes many enhancements such as video, audio, interactive learning labs, Internet access, full case presentations, interactive study guide, and a notebook function the students can use to make their own notes.
