Business, Corporate and Commercial Law

Business Organizations: Principles, Policies, and Practice provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of legal developments and scholarship relating to the forms of business organization in Canada. The law governing the corporate form is treated in detail, and partnerships and business trusts (including rapidly evolving developments concerning income trusts) are also carefully analyzed. The text provides a unique perspective on Canadian business law by considering how other bodies of law that intersect with corporate law, such as securities law and insolvency, shape the context in which Canadian corporations operate. The casebook considers contemporary developments in corporate law from a range of critical and scholarly perspectives so that students may easily understand the nature and purpose of corporations and their role in the economy and society. As well as providing a rich body of relevant information about evolving corporate law and scholarship, the casebook emphasizes problem-based learning and highlights the relationship between business law and practice, as well as current trends in corporate governance in the post-Enron era.
