Students who have taken this class may not take Law 6072 Corporations or Law 6051 BA/Corps for credit.

This course covers basic rules regulating the creation and operation of corporations.  It covers such matters as corporation organization; the distribution of powers among the corporate board of directors, its officers, and its stockholders; the proxy system; control devices in the close corporation; and the fiduciary duties of directors, officers and controlling shareholders.  This is a course for first year students only; it differs from the upper-level Business Association/Corporation (BA/Corps) course in that it does not cover the law of multi-person unincorporated business organizations.  That law is covered in more detail in the Unincorporated Business Associations course.
