This title is a part of our CasebookPlus(tm) offering as ISBN 9781634595216. Learn more at CasebookPlus.com. With the prior edition of this concise, up-to-date casebook having been adopted at over 100 law schools, the ninth edition preserves the authors' tradition of providing a comprehensive overview of agency, partnership, and corporation law. It also continues to emphasize six basic editorial principles: Be lean but not mean, cases edited ruthlessly to produce a readable and concise result. Facts matter, so they are included in all their potential ambiguity. Bring a planner's perspective to the table through extensive use of transactionally-oriented problems. It's a casebook not a treatise. No long, stultifying textual passages. Provide the cases and let the individual teacher use them as he or she sees fit. Try to find cases that are fun to teach. Great facts or a clever analysis are always given first priority in case selection. Provide a teachers' manual that goes into great depth, with analysis of every case and, whenever applicable, offering the disparate views of each author. An exhaustive teachers' manual extensively discusses every case and provides answers to every question in the text. One feature that many adopters find especially helpful is that all three editors give their own approach to the cases, showing the different ways in which the same case can be taught. Annually updated PowerPoint slides cover almost all sections of the book and feature an extensive use of data, graphics, and photos.

The title of the basic business law course -- Corporations, Business Associations Business Organizations, or Business Entities -- varies from law school to law school and from year to year. However, in these courses, the core coverage is essentially the same -- agency principles, partnership law, fiduciary duties, securities fraud, and changes in corporate control. This relatively concise book is intended to reach students in the basic corporate law course, regardless of course title. This book attempts to make the usual coverage as easy and straightforward as possible. Although the vast majority of law students take a corporations or basic business organizations course, there are surprisingly few attempts to systematically organize the most important doctrines and theories covered. Of the few books that track the basic business law course, even fewer still are of recent vintage. This book attempts to fill those lacunae. The book intends to aid students, of course, in the basic Corporations or Business Organizations courses. Additionally, this book would be a useful resource to students in other closely related courses in law school, like Agency & Partnership, Closely Held Firms, Mergers & Acquisitions, and Securities Regulation, to name just a few. In addition to law schools, the book is also written with an eye toward the graduate students in business administration who are frequently enrolled in a basic business law course, as well as the newly minted corporate attorney who wants a refresher text.

An Integrated Approach to Constitutional Law

This groundbreaking casebook is ideal for introductory Constitutional Law courses of 3-5 units that teach both structure and rights. Its novel approach presents constitutional law as a coherent system, not as isolated doctrines in silos. The book integrates subjects ordinarily taught in Con Law I and II; it integrates historical and doctrinal approaches; it integrates features of a casebook and a study guide; and it presents each case as an integrated whole, so that students learn relationships among doctrines while studying the details of each. Its tone is accessible, while its structure allows for sophisticated classroom discussion. The Second Edition goes beyond merely incorporating significant cases decided after the First Edition was published in 2015. New historical material and biographical profiles have been added, even for pre-existing cases; some chapters have been reorganized; and some text has been revised to anticipate student questions that commonly arise. The features of the casebook that made it a student favorite are, of course, retained. (Students in Prof. Caplan's classes were asked, in an anonymous survey distributed by proctors at the end of the semester, how the First Edition compared to casebooks used in other classes. 37% said the book was "better" than casebooks they used in other classes, and 45% said the book was "a lot better.")
