A popular and highly adaptable casebook for use in either a three credit or four credit course on business organizations or corporations. The second edition continues the traits that made the original so popular. The book is intended for all law students, whether they will practice on Wall Street or Main Street. It is aimed not only at those who were finance majors and know that they will take advanced corporate courses. It's also for the poetry majors who assume that they are going to dislike the course. Students who use the book are often shocked at how much they enjoy the subject and class. The book best meets law students' need to understand not only the legal issues that arise in battling for control of a large, mature public corporation, but also the legal and business issues that arise in starting and growing a new business. The book is student-friendly; it speaks to the student and conveys much meaningful information, much like a text book in other fields. It features problems and questions that integrate and develop doctrine. Unlike many other casebooks that merely cobble together a series of cases and open-ended questions, the book carefully teaches, in an enjoyable but organized way. During class, the professor can focus on the fun material; the book has already taught students the nuts and bolts. The book has a unique structure, as students follow a business (Bubba's Burritos) through every phase of each of the business structures. The course builds with the same cast of characters, as they explore how to form a business, how to make it grow, how to raise capital, how to transfer ownership, how to assess liability issues, and how the business may come to an end. This same business life cycle is experienced for the sole proprietorship, general partnership, close corporation, public corporation, limited partnership, and LLC. Students will compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of each business structure. The book draws on special resources.
