Course Description

Business Organizations (Law 603) is a mandatory course for the Business Law Certificate and is a prerequisite or co-requisite for many other business law courses. 

This course examines the legal organizations most often used by businesses in the United States.  We will study the specific laws governing business organizations, the policies and theories underlying these laws, and best practices for complying with them.  The primary focus is to analyze comparatively corporations, partnerships and hybrid entities such as limited liability corporations.

The subject matter will be taught using the “problem method” in order to promote a practical understanding of business organizational law.  Additionally, students will be required to read and interpret the core statutory provisions that govern each business organization.
