Description

Course Description*

This course focuses on business organizations: partnerships, limited liability companies, and corporations. We will consider the rights, duties, and potential liabilities of the people who own and operate these businesses. We will also aim to understand a series of complex restraints on public corporations, including shareholder voting, fiduciary obligations, shareholder litigation, and control transactions. The legal concepts we explore in this course are useful whether you work in a corporate law firm, the legal department of a business organization, or in some other capacity in which you have occasion to sue, regulate, or enter into transactions with business organizations. Mostly, the course will be a conventional lecture and discussion format. In addition to teaching you basic legal concepts, however, I want you to understand the role and typical work product of a business lawyer. In that spirit, I will emphasize “planning” exercises in the casebook that simulate the kinds of prospective advice business lawyers are asked to give.

Readers: No reader.
