About the Book

Cases and Materials on Business Entities, intended for the basic course in Business Entities, encompasses corporations, agency, partnership, and LLCs. Its extended coverage of alternative business entities distinguishes it from the more limited corporations-focused coverage of most business entities texts. The author includes elaborate problems designed to help the students become practice-ready as well as enhanced coverage of LLCs and principal cases that were decided within the last 20 years. The recipient of numerous teaching awards and a former clerk at the California Supreme Court and the U.S. District court, Chiappinelli has taught, written, and practiced extensively in business entities, corporate law, securities regulation, and civil procedure.

Key Features in the Second Edition Include: 
New developments and cases  
Added emphasis on LLCs, which will be deeper and more up to date than other casebooks’ coverage

New in-depth problems created to help students develop practice-ready skills
