Smith and Keenan's Company Law is a comprehensive and clear introduction to the principles ands practice of company law. The book is well respected for its accuracy and clarity, and has now been brought up to date with case law and legislative developments since the last edition. The levels of detail and topics covered avoid excessive technical detail and are appropriate for student courses.

Essential cases are highlighted, so that students are made aware of the key decisions. Objective-test questions (with answers) and essay-type questions are provided for students to test their understanding and application of principle.

There is also a companion website for the book at www booksites.net/keenan, which features regular updates to the law so that lecturers and students will remain up to date with new legislative and case developments.

This Scottish Edition of Smith and Keenan's Company Law contains a supplement for readers who are studying company law in Scotland. It highlights the principal differences between company law in England and Scotland.
