Corporate Law

Course Description

This No. 86 course will not only cover the basic principles of corporate law, but also pose bigger questions about the role of corporations in society and in the free market.  What are the necessary parts of a corporation?  Why should a student take a corporate law class if they’re not interested in that type of job?  How did corporations evolve and why are they considered “persons” under the law?

Do corporations have a responsibility to society?  If so, who determines what that is and how it’s executed?  Is profit the only legitimate goal for a corporation?  What role does government regulation play, and who do regulations protect?
