Business Organizations

SLN #: 43962
Course Prefix: LAW-654
Course Section: D01
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Forst
Course Books: View List of Books

Course Description:
This is an online class that will meet from June 1 - 29, 2021. A take-home final exam will be administered between July 6 - 8.

This course describes how the laws governing business organizations impact the work of all lawyers. A basic understanding of the organization and management of business enterprises, and the law of agency, partnership, limited liability companies, corporations, and securities, is routinely needed across a diverse range of legal specializations.

Business enterprises can be organized in various ways to achieve different goals. It is fundamental to understand all the forms into which business enterprises are organized, and the pros and cons of each form. Lawyers are often called upon by business people to help them select the form of business through which they can most effectively achieve their business goals. Accordingly, we study sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations, and the increasingly popular new form of enterprise called the limited liability company (“LLC”). Changing perspective, we study how lawyers practicing in different fields encounter and interact with business organizations whether through litigation, transactions, taxation, or public policy.

As a teaching methodology, we follow a hypothetical business established as a sole proprietorship and the transition of that business to a partnership, LLC, and corporation. We study how each of these forms is legally established and managed. The major focus of the course is on the most popular form of business organization, the corporation. We study how corporations are used to raise and manage capital, allocate risk, and divide ownership and management prerogatives. We focus on the responsibilities of boards of directors, the rights of shareholders, the issuance of stock, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate governance.

We briefly survey why and how companies “go public” and the implications of this decision and examine how the capital markets are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the securities laws.

As an overarching theme, we examine how businesses are regulated and why. We analyze the legal standard of conduct expected of companies, their owners and executives. We also examine broader policy questions such as how our economic system and private business needs promote business interests and shape laws and regulations in the United States.

This five-credit course is designed to provide intensive training in legal research and writing. Students are expected to have a solid foundation in basic legal research and writing, and this course should further those skills. By the end of the course, students are expected to have a working knowledge of the major research sources: reporters, digests, annotated statutes, citators, and secondary authorities. Students are expected to master two basic writing formats: the office memo and the client letter. Significant time will also be spent writing motions, and students will be exposed to additional documents types as well. Students will be required to rewrite all assignments and will complete a total of approximately thirty assignments during the course. Students will receive extensive individualized feedback on each assignment, and all projects, including both original assignments and rewrites, will be graded. Students are expected to spend an average of eight to ten hours per day on class assignments.

A student wishing to pursue independent study or fieldwork for credit must obtain approval of the Dean’s designee and the consent of a faculty member to supervise a proposed project. The faculty member assigns the amount of credit that the proposal justifies. In awarding credit to a student for an independent study paper, a faculty member should require a quantum of work from the student which approximates the amount of work expected from students enrolled in a regular course taken for the same number of credits. Faculty members should set minimum lengths for independent study papers based upon the complexity of the subject, the existing volume of literature on the topic, the number of redrafts required to complete the assignment, and the originality of the student's work product. Although exact guidelines cannot be formulated in awarding credit, past practices indicate that generally a paper of approximately 12,500 – 18,750 words, including footnotes, which has been redrafted one or more times after review by the faculty member, will be required for three credits. Generally, a paper of roughly 8,750 – 12,500 words, including footnotes (with one redraft) should be required for two credits, and normally a minimum of 6,250 words, including footnotes (with one redraft), should be required for one credit.

Evidence

SLN #: 40159
Course Prefix: LAW-605
Course Section: D01
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor(s): Baier
Course Books: View List of Books

Course Description:
This class will meet on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays from 12:30 - 3:25 pm beginning July 7, 2021. The last class will meet on August 2, 2021. The final exam will be administered on Thursday, August 5, 2021

Evidence covers the basic rules that govern the admissibility of evidence in civil and criminal trial proceedings. The primary focus is on how the Federal Rules of Evidence operate in practice, with some attention to areas in which the Arizona Rules of Evidence differ from the Federal Rules. The course is primarily taught by the problem method, with a focus on the practical application of the rules in a trial setting. This is a complex and difficult subject, but one that most practicing lawyers -- including non-litigators -- need to know; and it would be an especially tough subject to try to learn from scratch from a bar review course. Students should make every effort to take Evidence before taking Trial Advocacy or clinical courses.
