Description
An introduction to the legal rules and principles, as well as some of the economic factors, that pattern the conduct of productive enterprise in the U.S.  The principal focus will be upon the large, publicly traded corporation that dominates much of the U.S.  business environment - in particular, its financing, its control, and the potentially conflicting interests that the firm must mediate.  Legal topics to be covered accordingly include shareholder and executive compensation, basic fiduciary obligations, shareholder voting rights, derivative suits, corporate reorganization and control transactions.  We shall also devote some attention to partnerships, closely held corporations and other business forms.  No prior background in business law or economics is assumed.

A student may not receive credit for both Corporations and Business Associations or Business Associations (Enriched).
