Overview of
The Legal and Ethical Environment of Business


The Legal and Ethical Environment of Business has been uniquely created to meet the needs of instructors teaching either a flipped classroom or on-line course.  Unlike a traditional e-book that is simply an e-reader or pdf version of a printed text, this publication is designed to work like a webpage, linking out to web sites, youtube videos, the Legal Studies Classroom Blog and other internet legal educational resources. The interactive quality allows motivated readers to extend their learning to the limits of their intellectual curiosity. Unlike traditional textbooks that stretch or compress topics coverage in order to meet uniform chapter length requirements, this GRL publication gives topics their deserved coverage.
