In virtually every area of legal practice, some rudimentary knowledge about the laws governing business organizations (and particularly corporations) proves helpful. This survey course provides much of that orientation, examining the laws governing the modern corporation. We will cover a number of topics, including rules of agency law, corporate formation, corporate identity, rights of creditors, fiduciary duties, corporate governance, executive compensation, mergers and acquisitions and securities fraud. Our key goal will be to understand the basic structure of each topic, and how the topics interrelate “ in particular how corporate law regulates relationships among multiple different constituencies of the firm, including owners, managers, creditors, employees, customers, and suppliers. Viewed in this light, the governance of a corporation implicates the same challenges and concerns that affect any multi-party economic relationship, ranging from problems of collective action, free riding, private information, distribution and opportunism.

This course is a prerequisite for Securities Law and Mergers & Acquisitions.
