This is an introductory course on the law of business organizations. While we will focus primarily on corporations, we will also cover agency and partnership to examine similarities and differences in organizational law. Specific topics will include fiduciary law, shareholder voting, executive compensation, derivative suits, control transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate governance. Special emphasis throughout the course will be given to the functional analysis of legal rules and the law and economics method. This class is taught through a mix of lectures and discussion.
Class participation and regular attendance is required. I will be monitoring attendance daily.
