Jason Harris' Company Law: Theories, Principles and Applications 2nd edition provides a practical framework to critically analyse and apply the fundamentals of modern Australian company law. In this new edition, the author combines an authoritative and approachable style to discuss the history of corporate law and draws on a range of theories, both established and new. It expands on the first edition's discussion of corporate liability with new examples including directors’ duties, PPSA reforms from 2012 and continuous disclosure guidance notice from the ASX.
It also includes updated case law commentary on several important litigation cases involving James Hardie, FMG, The Bell Group as well as important case law developments in lifting the corporate veil s1322 and s1324, the senate inquiry into the performance of ASIC and the interim report of the Murray Financial System Inquiry. It also continues to offer practical case studies and examples as well as reading lists, discussion questions, flowcharts, mind maps and concise case extracts that emphasise the key elements in important cases.
The book includes practical examples to demonstrate company law in action — bringing the principles of the law to life. Jason Harris’ updated text encourages readers to critically assess the scope and limitations of the legislative model through the analysis of the core concepts in a real world context. Applying different theoretical perspectives, he outlines the main ideas and provides the tools to understand corporations law in the contemporary environment, while considering future developments of the law in Australia.
Links corporate theory to corporate practice, Adopts a cross disciplinary focus to the study of corporate law, Excerpts from key cases demonstrate the application and interpretation of corporate law in Australia, Written in a clear and concise style that speaks directly to the reader
