The Complete Guide to Roszkowski's Business Law


Business Law:  Principles, Cases, and Policyis characterized by the quality of its presentation and production.  Professor Roszkowski recognized early on that student learning is based on the quality of the text– how well written it is, how well it explains the concepts, how many examples and illustrations it contains, how well organized it is, and how comprehensive and thorough it is.  See the Table of Contents
Business Law:  Principles, Cases, and Policy is first and foremost a textbook.  It allows you to teach your class without having to spend class time supplementing, correcting, or explaining the material in the text.  With Business Law:  Principles, Cases, and Policy, you can rely on the text to provide the basics, freeing you to do what you want with your class time.  Business Law:  Principles, Cases, and Policy also is unapologetically a law book.  It has a real cloth cover, the highest quality paper and is printed in an easy to read double-column format using classic Times-Roman typeface.


Professor Roszkowski also recognizes the importance of excerpted court cases in teaching legal topics.  To this end, Business Law:  Principles, Cases, and Policy contains the finest selection of edited cases appearing in any business law text.  These cases are integrated throughout the text material, and include a mix of state and federal court cases.  They include both classic and recently decided cases.  These are real cases, not mere case briefs or summaries.  The facts and procedural history are first stated by the authors, followed by a substantial excerpt from the court’s opinion.  This approach provides the student with a good illustration of legal reasoning and analysis in operation and provides a basis for class discussion.


It is important to note that the cases in this book are designed to reinforce and illustrate the concepts explained in the text.  They are not a substitute for adequate text coverage of the topic presented.  Thus, students will learn the material by reading the text, whether or not you decide to assign the case relating to the material or discuss it in class.

Business Law:  Principles, Cases, and Policy has the finest set of ancillaries available for any text.
