Business Organizations (Fall 2019)

Course Description


This course will examine the laws governing business organizations, with an emphasis on corporations. We will cover agency, partnerships and the structure and function of a corporation. 

The subject matter will be taught using the “problem method” 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.  We will focus on Delaware law, with a secondary focus on other important states.  

The course is a four (4) unit course.  Grades will be awarded primarily based on an in-class final exam.  However, class participation and in-class exercises may be considered as well.  Students will be permitted to use computers on the exam. This course may be taken for a grade or CR/D/F.  

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
