Business Organizations and Corporate Law is a text designed for the paralegal student. The unique perspective of this text was created specifically with the student in mind and focuses on being reader-friendly and paralegal centered. There is a strong emphasis on the role of the paralegal in helping to create different business organizations, and the focus is on building a strong foundation on theory followed up with reinforcing practical examples and applications. There are learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter to clarify the goal of the chapter, and important terms are bolded and defined upon first use in order to highlight legal terminology. Ethical blocks were created to encourage discussion of ethical issues throughout the text, and there are many case excerpts included to lead to a more thorough exploration of business law issues. Not only are the various models of business organizations explored, but also the critical role played by the paralegal and the legal team in creating and maintaining those organizations. This along with a clear balance between theory and application as well as multiple learning tools, makes Business Organizations and Corporate Law the ideal text and reference.
