Corporate Law examines the legal principles and policies that govern Australian companies. Written in a plain-speaking style this text brings the accessibility of an introductory text together with the depth and analysis of a higher-level text, providing students with a solid understanding of all the key topics.

It does this through an exploration of the theoretical and policy basis for each topic while also placing each topic in its practical context. This book is equally valuable to readers approaching the subject for the first time, and for those seeking a deeper understanding of corporate law.

New to this edition - Substantially up-dated chapters on directors' duties to take account of recent decisions including those relating to One.Tel, James Hardie, Centro and Fortescue Metals Group.
