Gibson and Osborne continue to provide students of commercial or business law with an accessible and student-friendly, yet authoritative and comprehensive, textbook. Business Law will satisfy the requirements of most business or commercial law subjects throughout Australia.

Up to date and revised – In this edition, contract law has been consolidated into four chapters and care has been taken to ensure that the text represents current law in all states and territories.

Customisable – As well as chapters that cover the subject material in most Business Law units, custom chapters are also available that cover a diverse range of other business topics.

Builds strong base knowledge – Without going into unnecessary detail for business students, the text works to build a strong base understanding of the application of court decisions, statutes and government regulations. It’s about developing business acumen and understanding of the broader business, even if a learner may not be conducting this type of work day-to-day.
