Abstract

Corporations, a Contemporary Approach (2d ed.), by Alan Palmiter and Frank Partnoy, is an extraordinarily good casebook. It provides a well-organized, information-rich, balanced view of American corporate law.

Its principal shortcoming is that it is heavily focused on the corporate form. Coverage of agency, partnerships, and limited liability companies is limited, making the book less than ideal for a course that includes those subjects.

The Business Associations Supplement is designed to fill the gap. It provides materials for teaching agency, partnerships, and limited liability companies in a course on Business Associations or Business Organizations, using Corporations as the main text. The Business Associations Supplement also provides (1) problems and exercises that users can substitute for the Points for Discussion in Corporations, (2) fundamental documents for Facebook, Inc. and a hypothetical LLC, (3) some new cases decided since the publication of the second edition of Corporations, and (4) alternative edits of some of the cases in Corporations. These materials can also be used with other casebooks.

In this 2016-2017 edition of The Business Associations Supplement, I have added two new essays. The first is a four-page introduction to business associations that summarizes and explains the subject (in Chapter 1). The second is a fifteen-page essay that explains entity choice (in Chapter 6). Entity law – including corporate law – is composed almost entirely of default rules, with the result that virtually any entity type can meet the needs of virtually any client.

Note: Permission to reproduce these materials for use in teaching (with appropriate credit) is hereby granted. Hard copy is available through Amazon.

Keywords: corporations, business associations, partnerships, limited liability companies, entities
