Canadian Law and Business Studies

By Richard O. Gasparini, Norman M. Fera


Canadian Law and Business Studies presents a succinct overview of law and business for students at an introductory level. Organized into 20 chapters—which include topics such as rights and freedoms, privacy, confidentiality, land claims, and the environment—this book is designed to be a compact guide of the most essential legal rules in point form. It engages readers by delving into contemporary topics such as online pirating, cell phone contracts, vaccine mandates, careless driving, social media, sniffer dogs, international intrigue, Kyoto (1997), and Glasgow (2021).

The book covers a wide range of discussion areas including Indigenous rights, partnerships, companies, oppression, securities, insolvency, negligence, contracts, property, mortgages, copyright, employment, consumerism, discrimination, harassment, and world trade. It is well suited for instructors and students interested in law and social justice, general business, or business administration, and for those studying to qualify as law clerks or paralegals. Each chapter is concluded with an accessible essay that highlights and consolidates key takeaways for the reader.
