Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When you review this offering, be sure to notice:

- its comprehensive, succinct coverage of corporations, LLCs, partnerships, and agencies in a concise text specifically designed for the three- or four-hour single-term course

- the completely up-to-date content; 95% of the cases are from the 1990s or 2000s (over half were decided after 1996) and all agency references are to Restatement 3rd of Agency (2006)

- the enriched, accessible content and approach, using a student-friendly writing style and a real-world, practical focus in examples, notes, and problems

- the expertise of distinguished author Eric A. Chiappinelli, who has received numerous teaching awards and has taught, written, and practiced extensively in business entities, M&A, securities regulation, and civil procedure

- the extremely useful Teacher's Manual, with suggested syllabi (including suggestions for using the text to focus on all entities, some entities, or corporations alone), teaching notes and discussion pointers, lists of supplemental materials, and examination and paper suggestions for each chapter

Unique pedagogical features make the book distinctly flexible:

- You Draft It exercises are taken directly from the documents at issue in the case to guide students in thinking through the legal implications of the drafters' original language

- Current Setting sections introduce core legal principles, while Background and Context sections allow deeper exploration

- an innovative note structure includes Reality Check, Suppose, and What Do You Think? sections, allowing students to test and extend their understanding as they explore the nature and implications of the principlesat issue
