Understanding Company Law is a lively treatment of the key principles of the Companies Act 2006 and the modern law relating to companies.

It takes a unique approach to the subject which encompasses the important and growing fields of securities regulation, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility. The Companies Act 2006 is the largest statute on the books and company law can be a dry and technical subject. Nevertheless, in Understanding Company Law Professor Hudson provides a straightforward guide to the law, while providing context, detailed analyses of the leading cases, and no little humour.
