Supplement to Corporations Law and Policy:Materials and Problemsby Jeffrey D. Bauman, Alan Palmiter, Elliott J. Weiss
Corporations accompanies the casebook and provides updated material on corporations, including new and relevant decisions in this area of law. The supplement introduces basic concepts of corporate finance without unnecessary elaboration, discusses the close relationship between capital structure and governance issues, covers proxy solicitation and shareholder proposals, and combines discussion of the Supreme Court's proxy fraud decisions. Each chapter includes a problem that focuses on class discussion, and many of the problems place students in the role of corporate planners, rather than litigators, allowing instructors to highlight the real-world impact of doctrinal uncertainty about the scope of the director's duty of care. The organization of the book also reflects the growing importance, doctrinally and structurally, of the business judgment rule. Extensive notes provide students with necessary background information, and new materials reflect changing trends and new judicial developments.
