Featuring issues of ethics international law, and diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout, The Legal and Ethical Environment of Business by Ferrera, Alexander, Kirschner, Wiggins, and Darrow offers a comprehensive survey of the major legal topics affecting the legal environment of business today.

Focusing on ethics in every aspect of the business environment, The Legal and Ethical Environment of Business prepares students to work within current industry norms, practices, and legal and regulatory frameworks. Ethics coverage is integrated and featured throughout. Ethical theory is interwoven with practical applications using novel pedagogical tools, such as simulated managers’ meetings, developed to promote focused, thoughtful inquiry and to highlight the interplay of ethics and law.

In addition to coverage of classical ethicists and philosophers, this edition incorporates non-traditional ethical voices, such as sub-Saharan African Ubuntu philosophy to extend and broaden students’ thinking about ethical frameworks. Chapters include questions and sidebar features that address how issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion relate to the topic at hand.

The book also meets the needs of students who will be facing an increasingly international business environment. Integrated coverage of international issues extends beyond comparative law topics and includes substantial coverage of central topics in international business law, such as bribery and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, key provisions of the Convention on Contracts for the International Sales of Goods, and a comparison of the Uniform Commercial Code and the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

New to the Third Edition:

  • Adoption of a new, contemporary approach to ethical theories
  • Expansion of ethical theories to increase focus on non-Western traditions, women, and persons of color
  • Incorporation of new materials related to diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Consideration of the potential impact of COVID-19 on employers and employees
