Product description

This work is aimed at non-law students and covers legal issues normally relevant for such students.

This work is the English rendition of Besigheidsreg. Like its Afrikaans counterpart, it is aimed at non-law students and owes its existence to the need for a less comprehensive and affordable students' handbook dealing with all the legal issues normally relevant for such students.
