Stephen K. Huber, Maureen A. Weston. Arbitration : cases and materials. 3rd ed. LexisNexis, c2011.

KF9085.A7H83 2011

This casebook was co-authored by Professor Stephen Huber. The materials in this new edition have two central objectives: to provide an introduction to the law of arbitration, and to show how arbitration works in a variety of contexts. It is important for students to understand the arbitration process because it virtually always results in a final and binding award. These materials focus primarily on contract-based, binding commercial arbitration. “Commercial” includes employment disputes and arbitration between grievance arbitration pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement. Finally, a chapter is devoted to arbitration at the behest of the government, including court-annexed arbitration, that is not based on party assent.

 

 

 

 

 

Robert A. Ragazzo, Frances S. Fendler. Closely held business organizations : cases, materials, and problems. 2nd ed. West, c2012.

This book, co-authored by Professor Robert Ragazzo, is the only business organizations casebook to focus on closely held businesses, including agency, general partnerships, close corporations, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, limited liability companies(LLCs), and other hybrid entities. The principal change in the new edition focuses on the most recent uniform LLC Act (as well as Delaware law). Everything else has been brought up to date, including material on the Model Business Corporation Act (which now speaks as of December 2010), Delaware law (which includes corporations, limited partnerships, and limited liability companies), and federal securities law (included in the public corporation supplement).
