This book Business Law PDF is designed for students studying Business Law at a variety of levels as part of a Business course.

Preface of Book Keenan and Riches’ business law : We have assumed that the reader has no previous knowledge of English law; our starting point is basic principles and, when specialist legal terms are used, we have given clear ‘jargon free’ explanations. The book is designed to give the reader an understanding of the changing legal framework within which modern business organisations must operate. The emphasis is on law in its business context. Thus a range of business documents has been included, enabling the reader to relate the principles of business law to the real world of business.

In this connection our thanks go to the Consumer Credit Trade Association, the Road Haulage Association and HMSO for giving us their kind permission to reproduce certain of these documents. The reader should appreciate that the versions of these documents and forms appearing in our text are reduced in size, and also that copyright in them must be respected. This extends also to any alterations or variations in them without the authorisation of the owner of the copyright.

The teaching and learning strategies for higher level courses stress the development of a variety of learning activities, with students increasingly taking greater responsibility for their own learning. At the end of each chapter we have provided a selection of self-test questions and activities related specifically to the material introduced in that chapter and a number of specimen examination questions.

There is a companion website for the book at, which features regular updates on the law so that lecturers and students will remain up to date with new legislative and case developments. The website also provides selected outline answers to the self-test questions in the book. Lecturers who adopt the book can also access masters of diagrams and forms in the book and outline answers to the specimen examination questions.

The rate of legal change has continued apace since the last edition. The text has been thoroughly updated to incorporate changes in business law, especially the following:

  • New developments in consumer protection law, including the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008
  • Expansion of the treatment of the tort of negligence to include the development of the law in relation liability for nervous shock
  • Companies Act 2006
  • The Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006 Amendment Regulations 2008.

We have used the terminology introduced by Lord Woolf’s civil justice reforms throughout the text. For example, we have used the term ‘claimant’ for all cases to describe the person with a complaint, even though the person was described as ‘plaintiff ’ before the changes in civil procedure on 26 April 1999.

In December 2007 we were saddened to learn of the death of Denis Keenan, who had co-authored Business Law for eight editions over a 20 year period. Denis made an enormous contribution to legal education. Generations of students are indebted to him for his clear exposition of complex legal ideas. We wish to thank Mary Keenan for her generous support for the continued publication of new editions of Business Law.

In conclusion, Sarah Riches extends her thanks to Ciaran and Brian McCaughey and Vida Allen would like to express sincere thanks to her family for their support.

Our thanks go to those who were closely involved with this edition, in particular Zoë Botterill, Katherine Cowdrey, Elizabeth Rix, Gail Capper and other members of staff at Pearson Education. Our thanks also go to those who set, printed and bound the book. For errors and omissions we are, of course, solely responsible. Preface of book Business Law PDF By: Sarah Riches And Vida Allen.
