Cross/Miller's market-leading THE LEGAL ENVIRONMENT OF BUSINESSCASES, 11E delivers comprehensive, cutting-edge coverage using an interesting, understandable approach. You master vital skills as you study the legal environment within the context of law in today's increasingly regulated business world. Dozens of examples, business-oriented features, and step-by-step analyses place every topic within a meaningful context. You learn how today's legal environment is more about the constraints of business than the simple rules of law with this book's focus on managerial decision-making and current events. This edition makes ethics a priority with a new framework -- the IDDR Approach -- for making ethical decisions. The authors focus less on "black letter law" and more on broader issues that correspond to what business owners and managers face. Updated cases, content, and learning features present the latest developments and skills to succeed in today's legal landscape.
