Overview

Comprehensive, but without the length, Fundamentals of Business Organizations for Paralegals combines crisp writing and learning aids with a thorough treatment, plus up-to-date forms and cases.

This thorough but unimposing paperback provides a remarkable fundamental knowledge:

  • covers all types of business organizations, with both a basic and thorough understanding in a direct and concise format
  • balances the need to cover critical topics with a straightforward approach, allowing the material to be covered in a shorter course.
  • discusses each form of business organization thoroughly, including the nature of the entity, advantages and disadvantages, formation, operation and management, transferability of ownership, dissolution, and tax consequences
  • details the role of the paralegal in each organization type, outlining the tasks commonly performed by paralegals
  • includes useful exhibits and charts that highlight important topics.
  • integrates sample forms with the textual discussion
  • includes Internet resources that provide additional information, forms, or agreements
  • defines key terms defined in annotation, and a complete glossary provides an easy reference for terminology
  • uses case illustrations that illustrate the concepts of each chapter
  • guides students with discussion questions that stimulate class discussion and ensure that students understand the material
  • features a complete ancillary package, with instructor's manual and test bank, PowerPoint slides, plus additional forms, such as tax forms

The Second Edition is strengthened by:

  • new "Net Worth" sections in each chapter, which list Internet sites pertinent to each chapter
  • Practice Tips which provide useful and pragmatic suggestions for business and corporate practice
  • an enhanced discussion of the 2001 Uniform Limited Partnership Act and of limited liability limited partnerships
  • a new discussion of entity domestications (changing the state of organization) and entity conversions (changing the form of a business entity)
  • a discussion of new and emerging trends in corporate governance, shareholder activism, and corporate reform
  • forms up-to-date for 2006
