Course Outline: Business Organizations concerns the state and federal law applicable to partnerships, corporations, and other similar entities. In general, the course deals with the formation, operation, and dissolution of these various types of business enterprises. The readings focus upon the legal rights, privileges, and obligations associated with the entities themselves, as well as with their owners, directors, managers, and employees. Both doctrinal principles and policy underpinnings will be explored and emphasized throughout the class.

Course Syllabus: Syllabus revised 8/19/20

Course Notes: DistanceEd  The instructor for this course has expressed a preference to operate the course as distance education. This means no physical classroom is assigned for this course. This also most likely means synchronous internet videoconferencing class sessions during the day(s) and time(s) when the course is scheduled to meet. However, other, more flexible modalities are possible, such as not using some of the scheduled class sessions to meet but instead supplementing with asynchronous distance education techniques. More details should be made available from the instructor via their syllabus or via other means as the start of the semester nears.
