All the Books I Use in Business Law 4391

I teach an undergrad business law course at UTEP's College of Business. The focus of the course are the legal issues faced by startups, but I end up teaching a lot about starting a company as the business context is relevant to the legal issues. Most of my lectures comes from personal experience, but I quote and refer to several books. For any past or future students, here's the list of all the books I refer to in Business Law 4391.
