Agency, Partnership, LLC's and Unincorporated Associations: Effective Methods for Teaching LLCs and Unincorporated Business Arrangements
(Papers will be published in Washington and Lee Law Review)
One or more presenters to be selected from Call for Papers.
LLCs now are the most popular form of business organization for new businesses, far surpassing the corporation in use. Yet, many law professors still struggle for good, proven ideas and methods for providing adequate breadth and depth in their treatment of this subject, particularly as we all seek to cover agency, partnership, and corporate law concepts as well. Too often, LLCs, although deserving of significant attention, are squeezed in only after other business arrangements are treated more fully.
The Executive Committee will devote the 2014 program to the critically important, but much-neglected, topic of effectively teaching LLCs. Our section meeting will address many facets of better teaching the LLC, especially in a basic survey course but also in an advanced course. In addition to featuring several invited speakers, we seek one or two speakers (and papers) to address this subject. Within that broad topic, we seek papers dealing with any aspect of teaching in the unincorporated associations field, whether particular techniques, measuring outcomes, how best to treat certain substantive areas, achieving balance of coverage, and so on.
