Agency & Partnership (SCALE)



This course covers formation of the principal/agent relationship, authority of the agent to bind the principal in contract (express, implied, and apparent authority, ratification), the tort liability of principals and employers for the action of agents and employees (direct versus vicarious liability), fiduciary obligations of agents and employees, and termination of the agency relationship with resulting liability.
