Course Details


This course provides students with an introduction to the key issues involving business associations, although it will concentrate on those relating to corporations. Among the topics covered are corporate formation, limited liability, fiduciary duties of directors and officers, piercing the corporate veil, and a brief introduction to the law of agency, partnerships and the LLC. Our focus will be on a combination of statutory and case law. Students interested in the Business Association concentration should consider enrolling in Business Associations rather than Corporations, if they seek a fuller treatment of other business associations than the corporation, and more consideration of corporate finance, although one can still enroll in the concentration if Corporations is selected. The book used is Timothy L. Fort and Stephen Presser, Business Law (West Academic Publishing, 2015).
