Overview

This challenging casebook from a venerated author team is characterized by its richness and depth. A range of thoroughly developed topics allows instructors to delve into topics with as much detail as they wish. Comprehensive material covers both public and closely held corporations. A powerful introductory chapter sets out the defining characteristics of a corporation: limited liability, perpetual existence, free transferability, and centralized management. Cases and Materials on Corporations follows a thematic framework, examining corporate law in the context of the corporation’s responsibilities to its own constituents and investors, as well as to society. Strong casebook pedagogy includes text notes, statutory material, excerpted commentary, problems, questions, and edited cases

The Eighth Edition introduces a number of new main cases that have been recently decided, including: Matrixx Initiatives, Inc. v. Siracusano; Erica P. John Fund v. Halliburton Co.; Crown EMAK Partners, LLC v. Kurz (Delaware Supreme Court); Gantler v. Stephens (Delaware Supreme Court); and Airgas, Inc. v. Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. (Delaware Supreme Court.) A focus on the Dodd-Frank legislation shows its impact on "proxy access" and "say on pay" advisory votes. Updated material on market efficiency reflects an analysis of the housing bubble and financial crisis.
