This course is an overview of the law of business associations. We begin by discussing the core common law principles of agency and partnership before turning the bulk of our attention to the law governing corporations. We will discuss choice of law considerations for corporations, shareholder voting, executive compensation, the structure of financial markets, fiduciary obligations of officers and directors, shareholder litigation, and mergers & acquisitions. Throughout, we will be interested in how the law allocates rights and responsibilities to corporate constituencies: owners, managers, creditors, employees, customers, and suppliers. The governance of a corporation is as complicated because it is a multi-party economic relationship, requiring that we investigate problems of collective action, free riding, private information, distribution, and opportunism. The law of business associations regulates and addresses these concerns.
