Books: Required:
1. Mastering Corporations and Other Business Entities by Lee Harris. 2009. Carolina Academic Press. ISBN: 978-1594604447. Many students find this inexpensive book helpful in understanding a new area that uses a strange vocabulary.
2.Business Associations: Cases and Materials on Agency, Partnership and Corporations by Klein, Ramseyer and Bainbridge. 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th editions are all acceptable. Foundation Press.

Assignment: Sign on to the TWEN site for this course, download the Introduction, Syllabus and Game Plan for Days 1 and 2. There are Game Plans for each week of our 14 week investigation of how corporations work and how shareholders may protect themselves. Review the Supplemental Materials included on the TWEN site for Days 1 and 2. Read the Harris materials very carefully as we will have some sort of quiz on the business and economics terminology that we use throughout the course. (Mastering the terminology is the key to Acing the course.)

FYI, there is more reading for Day 1 than for the other 27 Days in BE. Thus, you may wish to start early.
You will also need to prepare the cases from Bainbridge. Feel free to pose questions and comments/complaints on the "Forum" part of the TWEN site. You should also not hesitate to email the TAs to explain whatever is unclear.
Very little changes to text. Cases not in one edition will be posted to the TWEN site for this course.

Details: Business Enterprises is a four-credit course which deals with the various forms of legal entities used to engage in commercial activities. All bar examinations include questions covering Business Enterprises/Corporations. Unincorporated business forms are also studied with emphasis on the rapidly expanding area of Limited Liability Companies. The Federal securities laws are referred to but are not a significant aspect of the course. While there are several drafting exercises, the course is principally conducted as a discussion of the 100 or so cases we read. In addition, we shall regularly discuss current developments in the business press regarding matters directly related to the course. These developments include shareholder activism, claims asserted against boards of directors and mergers and acquisitions.

The TWEN Site is an important aspect of the course. All materials and daily assignments, plus many supplemental materials will be found there. The first week’s Game Plan and assignments will be posted there several weeks prior to the first class. The Game Plans outline the materials to be read, questions to consider while reviewing each case and often include information providing background material that might otherwise have to be presented in lectures. The final examination accounts for 85% of the grade, the drafting exercises and class participation 15%.

Strategic International Transactions ( - 512G) - Bean, B.

Books: No textbook required.

Assignment: Submit a current resume by email to BWBean@Gmail.com prior to the beginning on the semester. Long befiore classes commence, review the suggested paper topics on the SIT TWEN site. This will give you an idea of just how few limits there are on your proposed paper topic. Submit your paper topic ideas by August 15 so that the substantive topics covered in the seminar can be incorporated into the course materials. Yes, there will be consequences to not discussing your paper topics options with me prior to the start of class. Review the Syllabus on TWEN for materials to be prepared for the first meeting of this seminar.

Details: This course is meant for those who have an interest in matters beyond the borders of the USA, including those who wish to consider more sophisticated aspects of corporate law where the US is a world leader. The course will introduce lawyers to selected legal aspects of strategic arrangements and challenges in international business and international relations. Topics we cover will be dictated in part by the research papers participants in the class undertake. Your principal effort in this course will be your paper dealing with any international, transnational, cross-border, inter-galactic or other problem/issue, whether human rights, global climate related, corporate, criminal or whatever. There are no limits, other than our discussion about what you are very interested in or curious about and which we mutually agree will be worth investigating. Regardless of whether you are seeking ULWR credit, the paper will require an outline, first draft and final. See the Syllabus for deadlines. Your first draft will be proofread by another member of the seminar prior to submission. In addition to the paper, each class member will make a formal presentation on the major points of his or her paper. Presentations are made during the last three meetings of the seminar iin November, prior to the Thanksgiving break. Your final paper is due on November 30..
While the Syllabus shows a good deal of reading, it is light reading. It is for information, largely short news items, and there is no final examination. The reading will not be a burden. Much of the reading will be divided among students to stimulate discussion. But you must be prepared to discuss.
