Robert M. Berger : Courses and Seminars
Agency and Partnership Law
Agency law, at its core, deals with vicarious liability: When is one person or entity liable or responsible for, or otherwise bound by, the acts of another. Agency principles permeate a great many areas of substantive law, including contracts, torts, commercial and consumer law, corporation law, and administrative-regulatory law. Understanding agency principles is essential in all of those other areas of the law. This seminar examines the law of agency and also the law of partnerships, as agency principles form the cornerstone of partnership law. We will also consider some commonly used variants of general partnerships, such as limited partnerships and limited liability companies. The grade in the seminar is based on classroom participation and a written final examination.
