The second edition of Commonwealth Caribbean Business Law has been thoroughly revised and updated to take into account recent developments in the law and the large amount of case law which has emerged since the previous edition. Breaking away from the traditional English approach of treating business law primarily as the law of contract and agency, the book provides a broad overview of the foundation of various legal systems in the Commonwealth Caribbean region. Before going on to examine the various areas of legal liability that may impact on business activities such as tort law, criminal law, internet law and payment in business transactions. Specifically, the book sets out the development of business law in several Commonwealth jurisdictions, including Canada and Australia, but with special focus on legal developments in Commonwealth Caribbean countries. The approach of the book is to present excerpts from judgments, so as to enable students to understand legal principles as espoused by the judiciary without the filtering bias of authors.
This new title is essential reading for students taking the LLB and Business Degree courses in the Caribbean and other commonwealth jurisdictions.
