This chapter begins by identifying the reasons that make the study of business law an important aspect in the wider context of business. It identifies strategies and good practice that will help a student with their studies, and provides a sample problem-type question and guidance on how to prepare a law-based answer. Business law is a distinct topic from other modules on accountancy, business, and management courses. A knowledge of the law cannot be bluffed—it is necessary to be aware of the relevant laws and think about business problems from a legal standpoint. This approach will ensure that legal questions are answered with reference to the law, which is crucial to being successful in the business law module.
