Corporate Law Third Edition provides a thorough examination of the underlying principles of the law regulating companies in Australia. It facilitates a straightforward understanding of an area that is easily obscured by the complexity and details of its rules. This is an easy to understand text, written in a straight forward style. It imparts a solid understanding of the important topics of corporate law.

Corporate Law is valuable for students approaching the subject for the first time, and for those seeking a deeper understanding of corporate law, as it presents a logical and thorough analysis of the necessary doctrine.
