Business Documents: Entity Charters and Reporting

Course Number: LAW 6930 Credits: 1

This course reviews commonly seen and used business documents in business law practice. Foundational business law courses (including Corporations, UBE, Corporate Finance, and Securities Regulation) concern law practice dealing with business documents. Yet the substantive classes may or may not cover these documents in light of doctrinal coverage needs. This course covers the core documents related to entity formation (certificates of incorporation, bylaws, partnership and operating agreements) and an important recurring reporting requirements of public companies (Form 10-K). It provides students with the opportunity to read and work with entire business documents and to put these documents in the context of the statutory laws requiring or enabling them.
