Book Chat — Model Business Corporation Act Annotated, Fifth Edition

7 Min View By: Jonathan C. Lipson

The Model Business Corporation Act Annotated, Fifth Edition, is an invaluable resource for understanding developments under the MBCA, the general corporation statute for 30+ states and the source of many provisions in the general corporation’s statutes of states that have entirely adopted it. The annotation is created by the ABA Business Law Section’s Corporate Laws Committee, which promulgates the MBCA. In this conversation, Jonathan C. Lipson of the Corporate Laws Committee explains the development and uses of the annotation, which surveys “all of the important case law, all the important analysis of each provision of this Model Act,” as well as the comprehensive, searchable online site that accompanies purchases of the four-volume set available from the ABA.
