LAWS 8810 Advanced Corporate Law: The Family Business (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The majority of American business is conducted, not through the publicly held corporation which is a major topic for most law school corporations courses, but by companies owned and managed by "mom and pop" or their children or grandchildren. They raise special questions as to the approach of corporate and other business entity law and the intersection with principles of family law. This course looks at some business law problems with special depth in that context. It pays special attention to the business lawyer who represents such an entity: his or her special ethical and practical concerns.
