Modern Law of Meetings comprehensively deals with the law and practice of company, insolvency and local authority meetings, as well as meetings to conduct business generally. It provides a thorough analysis of the meeting process, from deciding when a meeting is needed, the convening of a meeting, its conduct and management and the keeping of lawful and adequate records.

It is designed to help company officers and their advisers navigate all of the rules and regulations governing board and general meetings set out in the Companies Act 2006 and the model form articles for private companies limited by shares, guarantee companies and public companies respectively, all of which came fully into force on 1 October 2009.

It deals in detail with the saving provisions that apply to companies whose constitutions pre-date the relevant parts of the 2006 Act, which often have an option of either preserving their old way of doing things, or converting to the 2006 Act regime.
