Course Description
This course is an introduction to agency, partnerships, LLCs and corporations, with a principal focus on the powers, rights, duties and liabilities of corporate directors, officers and shareholders. Topics will include the formation and financing of corporations, internal structure, corporate governance, the allocation of power among the various participants in the enterprise, basic fiduciary law, shareholder voting, and control transactions. Partnership and LLC law will be addressed principally in comparison to corporate law. In addition to the state corporation laws of several jurisdictions - principally Delaware and Florida - the course will address selected federal securities law issues (such as proxy regulation) and the relationship between state and federal law regarding corporations, particularly in light of Sarbanes-Oxley requirements.
