Business and Corporations Law 4th edition introduces students to the foundations of the Australian legal system and the principles that govern contract and corporations law, business structures, and management of companies. It provides an overview of financial reporting and auditing and the foundation concepts pertaining to receivership, voluntary administration and liquidation. This book also explains in clear and plain language the nature of corporate membership and the duties of directors tasked with running the business affairs of the company.

To support learning of course content within the broader business context, this title includes chapter summaries, margin notes, key cases and legislation, diagrams and flowcharts. It also comes with a suite of online resources for both students and lecturers.
