An Introduction to Business Law in Northern Ireland is written in a style that breaks down the complexities of the law in a simple and concise manner, making it more easily understood by students preparing for either academic or professional examinations. The core areas of law relating to the functions of modern business in Northern Ireland are covered, namely: law of contract, tort, commercial law, employment law, planning and development law, as well as an introduction to the legal and court system in Northern Ireland.

Company law and compliance, in particular, are covered extensively over five separate chapters on company formation, company management, company directors and their duties, loan capital and insolvency, and shares and share capital. Corporate governance and anti-money laundering, some of the most topical and significant areas in contemporary business, are also examined.

First published in 2010, this 2nd edition has been updated for all relevant developments in the law, particularly with regard to the legal system in Northern Ireland, commercial and consumer law, employment law and company law.
