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 8/13/21

Course Notes:   Whether this course will be distance education, or will have a physical room assigned, and if so the extent to which the instructor might use the room during the semester, is not determined at the time when registration initially opens for this course.  You may see contrary indications in the UH systems where you actually register for the course.  In other words, this course might be distance education with no use of a physical classroom. It might be the “HyFlex” mode in which some Law Center courses used a physical room during 2020-21. As we get closer to the start of the term/semester for this course, this course note will be updated as decisions are determined. The instructors will be involved in those decisions, but decisions about modalities may not be invariant throughout the term/semester or between now and when the course starts.
