The book takes cognizance of the varied backgrounds of possible readers. For this reason, it is written in a simple, self-reading and easily comprehensible language, using maximum legal terms expressed in a less convoluted manner for ease of understanding. The benefit of this approach is that readers, including non-lawyers, will find the book interesting and rewarding. It is therefore aimed at a wide readership of industrialists, business executives, journalists, jurists, legal practitioners, scholars and students.
