Business Law in New Zealand - An Introduction provides students with a straightforward overview of the legal environment within which businesses in New Zealand must operate.
This book covers the needs of a course on business law within the “core” of the Bachelor of Business at Massey University, as well as being prescribed for the ‘law and mediation’ course at Massey. In addition, it will be of use to anyone who needs to have an awareness of the legal duties associated with doing business in New Zealand and wishes to quickly grasp the essential aspects of the legal framework. The text is also suitable for tertiary courses in introductory business law.
The text deals with (1) the basis of New Zealand Law; (2) the law of contract and torts; and (3) particular aspects of business law.
