There is a great wealth of diversity in the business tort laws of all fifty states and the District of Columbia. The new 2017 Edition of Business Torts: A Fifty-State Guide helps you quickly assess the merits and pitfalls of litigation in any given jurisdiction allowing you to make the best decisions for your clients. In addition to the very significant differences in the statutes of limitation, other significant differences include: Some states have not recognized a cause of action for negligent interference with an economic advantage. Negligent misrepresentation in one state is limited to claims against persons in the business of supplying information to others. One state recognizes a cause of action for "strict responsibility misrepresentation." Another state recognizes claims of "prima facie tort" for wrongs that do not fit into traditional tort categories. And these are only a few examples of the more significant differences.

Dynamic Business Law: The Essentials is appropriate for the one-semester Business Law course. It contains the basics of business law but does not get bogged down in the kind of details that are more appropriate in an upper-level law class. The text provides an examination of the basic questions, concepts, and legal rules of business law. Emphasis on the BUSINESS in business law. Dynamic Business Law: The Essentials emphasizes the tie of legal issues back to the core business curriculum. This will help both students and faculty. Faculty need to know how this is integrated as they are constantly ‘defending’ the inclusion of this course in the business curriculum. And students need to understand how the concepts tie to their future business careers. Emphasis on TEACHING. Many professors teaching this course are attorneys first and academics second. They do not have a lot of time to prepare or think about how to apply this information effectively for their business students. Dynamic Business Law: The Essentials contains a helpful instructor’s manual, particularly for the many adjuncts teaching this course. Emphasis on CRITICAL THINKING. Neil Browne, one of the co-authors of this text, has written a successful text on critical thinking. His framework is included in Dynamic Business Law: The Essentials as well – to help students learn how to frame and reframe a question/issue. Critical thinking questions are also included at the end of each case, to tie in this component even further.
