Overview: Dynamic Business Law, 2e is appropriate for the two-term business law course. • Emphasis on the BUSINESS in business law. Dynamic Business Law 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 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.

Instructor’s Supplements: The Online Learning Center contains the complete IM, Test Bank, PowerPoint, image library, and video clips. • Instructor’s Manual: The Instructor’s Manual provides a clear outline of how to begin using this text and is especially helpful to adjuncts who teach Business Law. Sample syllabi are included, as well as detailed lecture outlines incorporating PowerPoints and other materials professors can bring into their lectures. Exciting and new examples from outside the text are also included, and can be discussed in class to help generate excitement and involvement in the course from students. • Test Bank: The Test Bank, developed by Vonda Laughlin of Carson-Newman College, contains a variety of true/false, multiple choice, and essay questions – as well as “scenario-based” questions, which are application-based, and use a situation described in a narrative, with 3 – 5 multiple-choice test questions based on the situation described in the narrative. We’ve aligned our Test Bank with the new AACSB guidelines, tagging each question according to its knowledge and skills areas. Categories include Global, Ethics and Social Responsibility, legal and other External Environment, communication, Diversity, Group Dynamics, Individual Dynamics, Production and IT. Designations aligning questions with Learning Objectives, features, and case, exist as well. • PowerPoint Presentation slides: Developed by Jeff Penley at Catawba Valley Community College, we offer two different sets of slides for professors. The “Basic” set consists of an outline of each chapter. The “Premium” set expands on this outline to include hypotheticals and ethical dilemmas, allowing the instructor to incorporate application into the lecture. Instructor Video DVD (ISBN: 0077339118, 13-digit: 9780077339111): The Instructor Video DVD contains video clips from CBS that highlight current legal issues. Instructor Notes, located on the OLC, give insight into how to incorporate segments into the classroom and offer questions to stimulate discussion. Most of these videos are also part of Premium content - a big plus for instructors teaching online/hybrid courses.
