Commonwealth Caribbean Business Law Paperback / softback
by Natalie (University of the West Indies, Barbados) Persadie, Rajendra (University of the West Indies, Trinidad and Tobago) Ramlogan
Part of the Commonwealth Caribbean Law series
Now in its third edition, Commonwealth Caribbean Business Law continues to break away from the traditional English approach of treating business law primarily as the law of contract and agency. Taking a panoramic view, it explores the foundation of various legal systems before examining areas of legal liability that affect business activities.
These include areas such as contract law, tort law, criminal law, agency and internet law which present significant challenges confronting the business sector.
The book primarily targets the development of business law principles in several Caribbean Commonwealth jurisdictions but, where appropriate, also embraces the jurisprudence of other Commonwealth nations, such as the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
It also explores the United States as a non-Commonwealth jurisdiction, given the increasing importance in the Caribbean of judicial pronouncements relating to internet law from this territory.
Using excerpts from key judgments, the book allows students, particularly those with a non-legal background, to understand key legal principles for business as presented by the judiciary and draws parallels between legal theory and business practice.
