Business Organizations 2020: Lexis OverDrive Study Aids
The title of the basic business law course--Corporations, Business Associations Business Organizations, or Business Entities--varies from law school to law school and from year to year. However, in these courses, the core coverage is essentially the same--agency principles, partnership law, fiduciary duties, securities fraud, and changes in corporate control. This relatively concise book is intended to reach students in the basic corporate law course, regardless of course title. This book attempts to make the usual coverage as easy and straightforward as possible. Although the vast majority of law students take a corporations or basic business organizations course, there are surprisingly few attempts to systematically organize the most important doctrines and theories covered. Of the few books that track the basic business law course, even fewer still are of recent vintage. This book attempts to fill those lacunae. The book intends to aid students, of course, in the basic Corporations or Business Organizations courses. Additionally, this book would be a useful resource to students in other closely related courses in law school, like Agency & Partnership, Closely Held Firms, Mergers & Acquisitions, and Securities Regulation, to name just a few. In addition to law schools, the book is also written with an eye toward the graduate students in business administration who are frequently enrolled in a basic business law course, as well as the newly minted corporate attorney who wants a refresher text.
