As in the previous editions, this third edition offers a comprehensive account of topics that are essential equipment in the arsenal of every student in business studies. Based on the premise that the contract is fundamental to all business transactions, about half of this book is dedicated to the basics of the law of contract, with the remainder on selected Business Law topics. Presenting an in-depth exposition of the topics in prose that is clear, concise and easily readable, this is a refreshing change from other legal texts which adopt the ‘bare bones’ notational approach or detailed technical explanation of legal principles. A salient feature of the text is that detailed case summaries and extracts from leading judgments in Hong Kong and other jurisdictions are set out in support of the legal principles involved. This approach not only assists the reader in appreciating the underlying legal processes, but also enables the usage of this book as a ‘stand-alone’ text. The law on the various topics has been updated and with the advent of the Companies Ordinance (Cap 622) in 2014, revamping the corporate regime, the chapter on Company Law has been substantially re-written.
