This book makes the Business Associations or Corporations course accessible to students whether or not they already know anything about business. In a conversational tone, the original text and problems emphasize the legal issues that 99% of lawyers will encounter in their professional career. The book is organized around the life-cycle of a business. And while it includes landmark cases, the focus is on the legal issues encountered when starting a business, growing a business, and ending a business. This is the only current casebook for an introductory course in business associations that is co-authored by a business school professor. The book thus consistently and clearly provides students with the business context for understanding the legal issues explored.

The fourth edition features many important changes that far exceed in both scope and substance changes made in prior editions. Key highlights include the following: * Twelve new student case study problems have been added, increasing the total number of student problems from 53 to 65 * Substantial discussions have been added dealing with: Limited liability traps, undocumented partnership traps and risks, the design and drafting of partnership and LLC operating agreements, dividend challenge, going public realities, capital structure basics, crowdfunding and the JOBS Act of 2012, oppression risks, healthcare reform, and the judicial enforcement of buy-sell agreements. * A recap (which includes three new student problems) of the statutory basics of limited liability companies and the four types of partnerships has been added, designed for those students (there are many) who never gained a grasp of these core concepts and struggle in a planning course as a result * All tax discussions have been updated to include the significant changes of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 and thoughts on what might be coming in the future * Five case study examples have been added to the choice-of-entity "factor" discussion to better illustrate the impacts of various factors * The discussions relating to securities law exemptions, deferred compensation, and business valuations have been revised, repositioned and substantially shortened.

This book is the nation's first hardcover casebook devoted to renewable energy law and policy--a captivating and rapidly-expanding area of legal practice. It provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the diverse array of legal issues associated with renewable energy development, ranging from wind rights to solar access protection to geothermal resource rights. The book also features detailed coverage of various policy questions that continue to impact the renewable energy sector, including debates about the propriety of renewable energy subsidies and about how to address rooftop solar growth's impacts on electric utilities. In addition to its dozens of excerpted cases, statutes, and articles, the book contains a simplified wind energy lease and realistic samples of other materials that transactional lawyers are likely to encounter when representing renewable energy developers. With more than 200+ answerable questions and several extended Policy Problems and Practical Skills Exercises, the book is ideal for educational use. However, its unique and exhaustive contents also make it a valuable resource for anyone seeking to do legal or policy work in the nation's burgeoning renewable energy industry.

Despite the machinations accompanying the British decision to leave the European Union, the EU still remains a potent economic and political force on the international stage. American businesses, and their lawyers, cannot afford to ignore its institutions and law, because the Union is America's largest trading partner. While the book places the Union in its historical and jurisprudential context and parses its institutional and constitutional structure, its focus is squarely upon the exposition of business law. It introduces American law students and lawyers to substantive law of the Union focusing upon free movement (of goods, workers, the self-employed, cross-border service providers, business entities, and capital), competition law, merger control, state subsidies, and cross-border investment regulation. Although the presentation excerpts seminal cases in each area of business law, its format does not resemble the traditional law school casebook. The focus is upon exposition and explanation, with the authors (academics and practitioners) offering synthesis, analysis and context in each substantive area of law under observation.
