Everyone needs reference material for corporation law. This book was designed for novices, those without formal legal training, to acquaint them with the fundamentals of corporation law. The chapters flow in a normal order; they are easy to follow and understandable. Forms are provided in the appendix. Enough information and forms are included to well start one on the formation of a corporation. Most problems can be prevented or solved by a reading. Key terms, review questions, and essay questions appear at the end of each chapter as a reinforcement of the reading.
The support and encouragement of my loving wife, Joan, and our children, Karen Sue and Kevin, and Rolex (my daughter's Persian cat) was most welcome.
My thanks to the American Bar Association, Section of Business Law, Committee on Corporate Laws, for allowing me to reprint parts of the Revised Model Business Corporation Act.
I am especially grateful to Prentice Hall for providing me this opportunity. My editor, Elizabeth Sugg, and Dana Leigh Meltzer, provided the support that made this effort a reality. My thanks to the entire Prentice Hall family for their support and aid.
