Legal Aspects of International Business is well written, well adapted to this category of students, and provides a great overview on this area of the law. It is sufficiently detailed but still easy to understand for business students. It is also easy to use for professors, in terms of distribution of the different chapters, and the number and choice of subtopics.

It is also among the few legal academic textbooks to be targeted to business students, and specifically with a Canadian perspective. It is therefore a real gift not only to have such a book published, but to have one of this quality.”

— Hélène Beauchemin, Bishops University

More than ever, the international sphere is of vital importance for Canadian businesses. As economies become increasingly intertwined and trade continues to grow, and as technology and increased travel continue to make the world "smaller," an understanding of the legal aspects of international business is a highly valuable asset. This text — the only one of its kind — offers a thorough but accessible introduction to the topic. Today, every business student is, to some degree, an international business student. This book has been designed for courses at any level, and offers a Canadian perspective on the most important legal concepts, practical considerations, and relevant cases for today's business student.
