The field of cooperative business law has expanded as the use of this unique corporate structure extends into new business areas. Michael Droke and other members of Dorsey’s Agribusiness, Cooperatives and Electric Associations practice group have compiled this practical guide to help board members and executives understand the many and varied legal issues that can arise when serving a cooperative and its members.

Cooperatives often act, and are legally treated, like all other types of corporate business entities. This manual focuses on legal treatment unique to the cooperative structure, and areas where general business law principles operate differently because of the cooperative structure.
