Overview

Corporations and Other Business Organizations: Cases, Materials and Problems reflects the substance and implications of the significant changes in the law of business organizations.

Retaining the organizational structure of prior editions so well-received by professors and students, this book employs a variety of engaging pedagogical approaches designed to promote a comprehensive understanding of the full body of business associations law and practice. This organization promotes optimal teaching flexibility, allowing professors to choose from a balanced mix the cases, problems, and textual readings most suitable for their individual course.

This highly teachable book of manageable length is designed to be used in a three or four semester-hour corporations law or business association course. The first two chapters deal with unincorporated business organizations and the remaining chapters focus on corporations. Most chapters open with a situation involving one or more hypothetical clients, with later situations building on earlier ones. These optional problems can be used to stimulate classroom discussion, to place the cases and other materials in an understandable context, or omitted entirely. Because this is a teaching device rather than a research tool, the authors heavily edited the cases, omitting both footnotes and internal citations while preserving the most important language.

Textual readings contain background materials on related areas such as securities regulation to impart a greater of understanding of the larger picture. An Appendix includes an introduction to financial statements.

The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
