Part I of this note describes the various tort liability provisions found in the professional corporation acts, focusing particularly on the recently published Model Professional Corporation Supplement. Part II compares how effectively these alternatives accomplish the goals of accident law in the professional corporation setting. The inability of the preferred model provision to alleviate the malpractice problem in any way as well as proposals for reinvigoration of the professional corporation act concept are discussed in Part III.
