Legal Entities and Relationships, 3rd Edition provides an introductory overview of various legal entities and relationships, including the basic concepts and terminology of corporate law, property law, and estates law.
Part I discusses the advantages and disadvantages of different business organisations, including sole proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations. Part II examines several types of property law: personal property, real property, and intellectual property. Finally, Part III focuses on estate planning and administration, including intestacy, holograph wills, estate trustees, probate, power of attorney and more.
Although these areas of law are outside of the permitted scope of practice for paralegals and court clerks, they are often the subject matter of actions and proceedings in Ontario courts and tribunals, and paralegals and law clerks will greatly benefit from this general overview.
