  • Description: The newest book in the Global Issues series, this title is designed to allow the introduction of comparative and transnational law issues into a basic corporation law class. Topics include choice of law; a basic typology of business organization forms in the world; limited liability and creditor protection concerns; corporate governance structures; mismanagement by directors and controlling shareholders; insider trading; and takeovers. The book is designed to inform, rather than overburden, the basic corporation law course. Carefully drafted note materials make the book self-contained, so neither students nor instructors will feel compelled to engage in extensive outside reading.
