One of a series of regularly updated Study Texts providing coverage of the examinations of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants (ACCA), this workbook covers the entire syllabus and includes numerous questions from past examinations with full suggested solutions. The objective of the syllabus is to ensure that students can understand certain basic legal principles and can apply them in various situations. The text has been fully revised to meet the requirements of the 1988 course. New topics in the syllabus for the first time, such as professional negligence, have sharpened the focus of this paper to increase its relevance and interest to the trainee accountant. A companion Practice and Revision Kit (principally comprising progressively arranged series of questions and solutions) is also available.
