Cases and Materials on Agency and Partnershipby William A. Gregory, Thomas R. Hurst
The authors believe there is evidence that students are not
The authors prepared the book for use in the two or three semester hour course which is usually entitled "Agency and Partnership" or "Business Organizations." It is intended to provide the student with a working knowledge of the basic forms of business organization other than the business corporation.
The authors believe there is evidence that students are not receiving an adequate foundation in fundemental concepts of agency via the "pervasive method" of teaching these concepts in contracts, torts and corporations and other courses. Cases and Materials on Agency and Partnership and Other Forms of Business Associations represents an effort to respond to this concern.
Some of the noteworthy features of this book include: special emphasis on the law of partnership and limited partnership, in recognition of the increasing significance of the partnership since passage of the Tax Reform Act of 1986; separate sections are included dealing with partnership civil procedure and partnership bankruptcy. Extensive discussion of significant changes made by the Revised Uniform Partnership Act, as amended in August, 1993; separate sub-chapters dealing with the franchised business and limited liability company; special section on nonprofit unincorporated association; a large number of recent cases which raise traditional agency and partnership law problems in the context of contemporary issues as sexual harassment in the work place and employer liability for criminal misconduct of employees.
