Business Corporations (LAWS 600) Section 001
Instructor Names: Burkhard
Textbooks: Business Structures — 3rd Edition. (Authors — Epstein, Freer, Roberts & Shepherd)
Statutory Supplement (Note — there should be plenty of used copies of this floating around the building)
Notes: Please read 1-24.
In the text in Chapter # 1 there are a number of citations to the Model Business Corporation Act (cited as "MBCA"). We have adopted this in South Carolina and you are to read and apply the South Carolina statute to each of the problems in Chapter # 1 which cited to the MBCA. The statutes are in your supplement. It is very easy to convert the MBCA section number to the parallel South Carolina statute. For example, on page 8, problem # 1.2, there is a reference to MBCA §8.01. This is simply S.C. Code §33-8-101. Likewise MBCA §2.02 ("articles of incorporation") mentioned in problem 1.4, is simply §33-2-102. All of the corporate statutes start with "33" and then add the MBCA number.
Note. The text often also refers to Delaware and New York statutes. We will generally not pay any attention to these.
In Chapter # 2 of the text there are references to both the Restatement (Second) of Agency, and the Restatement (Third) of Agency. You have the Restatement Third in your supplement, and you will need to refer and study the applicable Restatement (Third) provisions mentioned in the text. From page 31 through 44, apply the appropriate Restatement (Third) of Agency sections which are noted in the text.
The full syllabus for the course will be posted on TWEN after August 18.

    Note that both these readings date to the early 1990s, when most of you presumably were still in nursery school (coincidentally, shortly before the UN Rio meeting which both implicitly targeted). Ask yourself what has changed since the early 1990s, both in terms of environmental and economic development concerns? Password for these pdf files is posted on the assignment bulletin board across from the Law School Registrar's office.
  2. We shall spend much of the first class in lecture format explaining generally the international law system and public international law's sources of law doctrine as technical background for our course.

The second is a slightly dated the BBC news webpage entitled In Depth: Battle over Trade at http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_depth/business/2004/world_trade/default.stm (but note that not much has really happened since 2008, and ask yourself why?)
