This is the page for Caroline Bradley’s Business Associations class at the University of Miami. I am teaching this class in Spring 2019. We will use William A Klein, J. Mark Ramseyer & Stephen M Bainbridge, Business Associations: Cases and Materials on Agency, Partnerships, LLCs and Corporations (10th ed. 2018).  I will provide links to statutory material via this blog.

Week 10: March 18-22: I assigned too much material for week 8 so on Tuesday we will begin with special litigation committees. Please read to page 410 for Tuesday. Please read to page 444 for Wednesday and to page 464 for Thursday.

I said I would provide some information about the final exam for this semester, as I changed the course book this semester. I took a look at last year’s exam, and it is not very different from an exam I might write now. We haven’t yet covered some of the issues raised there, and there would be some differences of emphasis this semester (we haven’t seen cases on corporate officers’ authority, we haven’t discussed Wynn Resorts and we haven’t yet focused in as much detail as we did last spring on the control issues). But overall the exam is the sort of exam I could write now.

With respect to the 2016 exam, the material I was looking for in answers to question 2 and question 3 were a bit different from some of the material we have studied. But question 1 would be a question I could ask now, and question 4 is pretty fair, I think.

In Spring 2014 I used the same book we are using. It was an earlier edition, and there have been some changes since that edition, but except for a reorganization of the derivative litigation material so it is covered later in the book than it used to be, and for the inclusion of some more recent cases, there isn’t a great difference.
