Public Lecture by Emeritus Professor Paul Dibb and Adjunct Associate Professor John Lee.

1.2 Law and context

The law relating to businesses, which includes company law, is a highly practical subject because of the areas which it covers. You may in fact already have experience of this if you are in business; in addition or alternatively, you may be a shareholder in a company, or have lent money to one.

All students and practitioners of these areas of law therefore need to have a good understanding of how they actually work in practice, as well as the commercial, political, economic and social c

Using your calculator

Many people see calculators only as a way of producing answers—indeed some people see them almost as a means of cheating, of short-cutting procedures that can and should be carried out in one's head or on paper. However, the calculator can also be a means of learning mathematics more effectively, something you will come to appreciate more.
