Here are two terrific books
Australian Business LawHe has another book titield "Understanding Company Law" by P. Lipton, A. Herzberg and M. Welsh, (Sydney: Thomson Reuters, 16th ed. 2012).Both books are good. The first is more basic. The second is more advamced
sorry I accidentally pressed the enter
The author of both books, Paul Latimer, is an associate professor at Monash University. The first book is available on Amazon USA site as used from 2008
ok that sounds good, in terms of contract law,patent law and franchise law, are they all covered in the books?
I used the first one in a comparative common law class where we looked at UK, Australia and New Zealand laws.
Not as a full overview
these are all distinct areas of law and you would need to get a book for each one. Certainly for patent law and franchise law
contract law is covered by both
ok so in terms of getting books for patent and franchise law, which ones would be good to go for?
for patent law
for franchise but this book is not for attorneys more for business people
are you a law student?
not exactly, I'm in the process of starting my own business this year developing a device similar to an NAS server, but with a lot of added features to personalise the local data storage experience.
i wanted to have a look at the franchise law in particular because i have a friend who is suing his franchisor along with 20 other franchisees at the moment due to an increase in franchise fees so i thought it would be good to get a good grasp on that side of things for future reference
Then the book I referenced should work. It will give you a good overall view of the regulations
i have a bit of a photographic memory so i wanted to see how i could go with acquiring a good knowledge base on Australian business law in the next 12 months whilst in the process of commercialising my product.
ok, any other books you would recommend?
Wow. I'm jealous. Another book that I have come across but not studies with is "Corporations Law in Australia" see here: http://www.federationpress.com.au/bookstore/book.asp?isbn=9781862873148
These books will give you a good grasp of the law.
ok, looks like i've got some good reading to do over the next couple of months here, really appreciate your time.
Please rate me positively. Good luck!
