Business Organizations: Practical Applications covers the law of corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, and agency authority. The book’s ultimate goal is to provide the student with the knowledge and basic skills she will need to make the transition from law student to new attorney. The book first lays the foundation for the study of business organization law by exploring the economic, financial, and theoretical concepts that are the undercurrent for the law. It then takes each of the important topics of business organization law and carefully works to cultivate the student’s familiarity and understanding of the issues and the relevant law. By exploring client motivations, market limitations on private ordering, and the reasons why lawyers structure transactions in particular ways, the book enables the student to place the law in its relevant context, promoting a deeper understanding and better preparing her to practice in the field of business organization law when she graduates.
The Companion Workbook promotes active learning by the student. Each exercise furnishes the student with the tools to complete the exercise by referring her to specific sections of the text and the relevant statutory provisions.
