the relationships, rights, duties, obligations, created
and/or embodied in jurisprudence and statutory regime for
entities and also fiduciary relationships absent a entity
with legal personality. The course particularly focuses
on trusts and trustees but also examines other entities
including corporate type legal persons with limited or unlimited
liability for members and partnerships. This course
then examines Civilian law entities, such as the foundation,
stiftung, and stichting,
as well as addressing the recognition of entities cross-border
between Civilian and Common law jurisdictions and the Hague
Convention and its potential uses is considered.
This is not a tax course but rather a substantive
law course. Generally, it is taken concurrently with
Tax of Trusts, Companies, and other Entities. This course is taught by Dr Daan Ribbens, author of numerous
academic articles and books on comparative legal issues
associated with entities.

This course will involve fourteen weekly modules
that are delivered through on-line instruction pursuant
to current program specifications.
Each module will contain text material, study guide
instruction, and weekly interactive participation.
Text material may contain a combination of code sections,
cases, and commentary materials.
Study guides will contain commentary materials upon
the text materials with imbedded exercises and assignments
to be completed either independently or within a group of
two to five persons.

or submitted to the classroom.

construction will be explored as well as the provision to
students through streaming technology.
During the sixteen-week semester, the students will
have two technology skills and control weeks.
The first week of the course, the student will spend
the time acquiring and testing the necessary accessing components
of the course, including: blackboard skills, database access,
proxy server access, material download, and other technical
students will introduce themselves and identify with each
other (camaraderie and network building).
During the third week, students will be given another
breather week to check the quality of their acquired technology
technical skills and offsite database access in order to
identify any problem areas that require immediate correcting.
During the semester, each student will receive at
least two detailed feedback sessions from the Instructor
through the detailed marking of his/her/group study guide
assignments and/or class participation.
Separately, the Instructor is available for office
hour private counseling through email, telephone, and perhaps
by residential office appointment.
Other assignments may receive feedback and will receive
a grade, recorded in the online grade book that students
may assess their performance.

the modular-weekly interactive participation opportunities
in the classroom, (2) mandatory weekly participation through
being called upon to address the class for certain modules
as well as (3) modular study guide assignments.
Missing mandatory weekly participation assignments
is the equivalent of being not prepared in class and will
result in a zero for that assignment.
Not turning in study guide assignments will result
in a zero for that assignment.

factors, as follows:
study guide assignments – 25%
