Drake's Business Organizations in a Planning Context,
Cases, Materials and Study Problems

This book is designed for a corporations or business organizations course that introduces fundamental entity concepts in the context of legal planning challenges and through exercises that develop analytical, problem solving, writing, and communication skills. The book features:

66 mini-case study problems

Core doctrinal concepts and contemporary issues, such as say-on-pay, latest shareholder proposal trends, director election bylaws, JOBS Act of 2012, advance notice bylaws (round two), and more

Comprehensive discussions on a wide range of planning challenges: choice-of entity, buy-sell agreements, employee protections, owner operational deal points, ethical challenges, shareholder debt, securities law exemptions, structuring business sales, director protections, controlling shareholder risks, hostile takeover bids, executive compensation, and more

Practical, understandable discussions on financial statements, fundamental financial concepts, business entity taxation, going public realties, bonds, drafting key organizational documents, business valuations, and more

Court opinions and statutory materials that eliminate the need for supplementary materials

The book is supported by a teacher's manual that provides answers to the case study problems, recaps court opinions, and explains how the book is used in a large class (90 students) to help develop analytical, writing, teamwork, and communication skills. A companion website provides an optional PowerPoint slide library and sample exam questions.
