Product details

A comprehensive guide to aspects of Business Law in South Africa, perfectly suited for business law students in commerce and humanities faculties at universities in South Africa.

Each chapter of the work incorporates a detailed, easy to understand, discussion of the basic principles of the various aspects of business law.

The second edition of Basic Principles of Business Law incorporates relevant legal developments and an innovation in the way in which we illustrate the importance of understanding, and the practical application of, the core principles of business law.

A major legal development reflected in the second edition is the enactment of the Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008 which introduces a new, comprehensive legal framework for consumer protection.
