Offering the traditional, solid approach of previous editions and now streamlined to include more topics for a one-semester course, Hamilton and Macey's Cases and Materials on Corporations covers the law of business associations and corporations for introductory courses. The book discusses all forms of business organization, including limited-liability companies, partnerships, closely held corporations, publicly held corporations, and novel business forms. It also covers transactions in shares by directors and others; indemnification and insurance; and federal securities law, including insider trading, corporate governance, and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act. Updated to include new developments, the book covers topics such as Sarbanes-Oxley and more aggressive posturing of the Delaware judiciary; important revisions in the Model Business Corporation Act; recent developments in asset protection of limited liability companies; the Securities Litigation Uniform Securities Act; new regulations about full disclosure by registered publicly held companies; and the independence of auditors.
