The course will briefly consider theories of the firm and their role in the economy. It will cover basic principles of contracts, business organisations (notably partnerships and corporations), the incorporation of an enterprise and how the corporate structure works. We will then consider management and control of the corporation, actions of directors, and, generally, the distribution of powers between directors and shareholders within the corporate framework. General concepts on agency, financial markets, antitrust, and intellectual property regulation (such as patent and trademarks) will be addressed and explained in class, as they are primarily intended to provide the students with the basic tools needed to understand the relationships between law and enterprises. In light of the growing internationalization of modern financial markets and business relationships, the course will not be exclusively focused on the Italian regulation: it will rather provide general legal principles applicable to various countries and systems. Reference to parallel legal developments in various jurisdictions will be made throughout the course.
