Summary

Business Organizations and Corporate Law is a book designed to provide reference for the training and practicing paralegal professional in the realm of business organizations. The unique perspective of this text was created specifically with the reader in mind and focuses on being accessible and paralegal centered. There is a strong emphasis on the role of the paralegal in helping to create different business organizations, and the focus is on building a strong foundation on theory followed up with reinforcing practical examples and applications. The text explores the basic concepts of business from sole proprietorships to corporations, and also addresses some of the more mystifying concepts such as shareholder agreements and business judgment rule. There are objectives at the beginning of each chapter to clarify the goal of the chapter, and important terms are bolded and defined upon first use in order to highlight legal terminology. Ethical blocks were created to encourage examination of ethical issues throughout the book, and there are many case excerpts included to lead to a more thorough exploration of business law issues. Not only are the various models of business organizations explored, but also the critical role played by the paralegal and the legal team in creating and maintaining those organizations. This along with a clear balance between theory and application as well as multiple learning tools, makes Business Organizations and Corporate Law the ideal reference.
