Corporations classes present students with two related problems: First, many students have trouble understanding the cases studied because they do not understand the transactions giving rise to those cases. Second, Corporations classes at many law schools are taught from a law and economics perspective, which many students find unfamiliar and/or daunting. Yet, with few exceptions, corporate law treatises and other study aids have essentially ignored the law and economics revolution. This book is intended to remedy these difficulties. The pedagogy is up-to - date, with a strong emphasis on the doctrinal issues taught in today s Corporations classes and, equally important, a mainstream economic analysis of the major issues in the course. As such, the text is coherent and cohesive: It provides students not only with an overview of the course, but also (and more importantly) with a unifying method of thinking about the course. Using a few basic tools of law and economics-price theory, game theory, and the theory of the firm literature-students will come to see corporate law as the proverbial "seamless web." Finally, the text is highly readable: The style is simple, direct, and reader- friendly. Even when dealing with complicated economic or financial issues, the text seeks to make those issues readily accessible.

This casebook embodies the conviction that theoretical and practical legal education are complementary and no more so than in the setting of M&A transactions, where corporate lawyers are regularly called upon to draw on their substantive knowledge of the law to advise clients on how best to effectuate their business objectives. Accordingly, this book retains the most significant judicial decisions in M&A jurisprudence while also making heavy use of textual explication, sample documentary provisions, and the latest teaching methods to deepen students' understanding of the relevant case law and prepare them for practice. The authors employ three principal pedagogical methods: Questions help students focus on information in the cases that is most relevant to the principles underlying specific topic areas. Problems hone students' abilities to interpret and apply the material to novel situations similar to those they might be asked to analyze in practice. Skills exercises provide time-efficient transactional skills training to students in the context of M&A. Additionally, this title is accompanied by online self-assessment quizzes, tied to the text, that help you gauge your understanding of the material.

This book explores a range of problems in the application of agency law in commercial practice. Moving beyond the limited introductory resources currently available, it "tests" abstract agency law concepts in specific commercial contexts, with reference to jurisdictions around the world. There is an enduring commonality of concepts and principles within agency law, both within the Commonwealth and within the jurisdictions of the United States. The book's comparative approach, drawing together analysis of national and international jurisdictions, provides innovative perspectives and insights, as well as practical guidance on solving commercial problems. The book opens with a detailed introductory chapter which provides a broad overview of the agency issues arising in specific commercial contexts. The subsequent chapters are grouped thematically: company law, financial transactions and services, sale of goods; as well as agency in procedural contexts. Topics covered include the role of the director and directorial board in company law and agency law, agency in shipping law, undisclosed principal in sale of goods cases, regulation of conflicts of interest in securities transactions, poseur-agents and transactional intermediation, the operation of agency in retail financial services, the agent's warranty of authority, and power of attorney. This book is an invaluable resource on both agency theory and commercial practice.

Introducing Single Member Companies in Ethiopia. Major Theoretical and Legal Considerations

In an increasingly universalizing world, operating business in the form of companies is apparently becoming an indispensable aspect of modern commercial life. The major reason that led to the corporate form as the principal method of organization of commercial activity, among other things, is its advantage of limited liability. Limited liability, in its classical sense, implies the insulation of individual shareholders composing the company from the liability of company debts. Yet, the traditional corporate legal theory has confined the advantage of limited liability within the purview of multimember corporations, making it inaccessible to solo investors. However, quite recently, the historical relic of corporate theory that views corporations as a legally personified body of numerous subscribes of shares has undergone a sharp evolution, as have many other business practices and their legal bases. The purpose of this thesis is to look into notable literature on major corporate theories and analyze whether it would be applicable to single member companies (SMC). It also seeks to compare major legal frameworks governing SMC’s in comparative jurisdictions to show the legal and theoretical implications of introducing SMC’s into the Ethiopian corporate legal system.
