The rapid proliferation of unincorporated business forms has moved beyond the scope of traditional Corporations and Agency/Partnership courses and textbooks, which leaves students without the necessary knowledge to competently advise business clients. Unincorporated Business Entities was designed to fill that widening gap in the existing curriculum. Unincorporated Business Entities is designed for a three-semester-hour course and has the following features: • Like its predecessors, the new edition of Unincorporated Business Entities takes a business planning approach to teaching the modern law of partnerships and other unincorporated firms. • The material on LLCs has largely been rewritten, reflecting the rapid development in this form over the last several years. • Each chapter contains new and updated notes and problems that provide a "hands-on" approach to the consequences of, and planning and drafting for, issues in agency, partnership, limited partnerships, LLCs, and limited liability partnerships. • The materials on partners' financial rights now include a short primer on financial accounting. The Teacher's Manual is almost six-fold expanded from previous versions. It contains approaches to organizing classes, synopses of all the cases, lecture outlines, proposed questions and answers, discussions of answers to all the problems, diagrams of the complex cases, and flow charts of complex statutory analysis in areas like partnership dissolution and winding up. The Appendix also contains the partnership, limited partnership, and limited liability company statutes you will need for reference purposes.

Philosophical Foundations of Fiduciary Law

Fiduciary law is a critically important body of law. Fiduciary duties ensure the integrity of a remarkable variety of relationships, institutions, and organizations. They apply to relationships of great personal significance, including in some jurisdictions the relationship between parents and children. They structure a wide variety of commercial relationships, and they are essential to the regulation of relationships between professional service providers and their clients, including relationships between lawyer and client, doctor and patient, and investment manager and client. Fiduciary duties, perhaps uniquely in private law, challenge traditional ways of marking the boundaries between private and public law, inasmuch as they figure prominently in public governance. Indeed, there is even a storied tradition of thinking of the authority of the state in fiduciary terms. Notwithstanding its importance, fiduciary law has been woefully under-analysed by legal theorists. Filling this gap with a series of chapters by leading theorists, this book includes chapters on: the nature of fiduciary relationships, the connection between fiduciary duties and morality, the content and significance of fiduciary loyalty, the economic significance of fiduciary law, the application of fiduciary principles to public law and international law, the import of fiduciary relationships to theories of authority, and various other fundamental topics in the field. In many cases, new and important questions are raised by the book's chapters. Indeed, this book not only offers a much-needed theoretical assessment of fiduciary topics, it defines the field going forward, setting an agenda for future philosophical study of fiduciary law.
