The compartmentalization of knowledge is no longer sufficient to enable the professionals to serve the interests of their clients in a complex and interrelated world of modern business. Thus, business lawyers, more often than not, are asked to step outside the boundaries of law and seek knowledge in other disciplines and areas of study so as to be able to give their clients the best possible advice. Likewise, non-lawyers such as managers and various consultants are more and more in need of at least basic knowledge in legal matters so that they can do their jobs to the best of their capacities.
