Company Law: Theories, Principles and Applications provides a principled framework to critically analyse and apply principles of modern Australian company law. The key aim of this text is to engage the reader and demonstrate corporate law in action rather than merely restating a series of rules and principles. The writer draws on a range of approaches including historical analysis and the use of practical examples to bring the principles of Australian company law to life. The reader is encouraged to critically assess the scope and limitations of the rules of law through detailed analysis of the core principles in their real world context. The text uses different theoretical perspectives to evaluate the main principles of company law which arms the reader with tools of analysis and facilitates reflective learning. The reader is challenged to consider the appropriateness of modern Australian company law and possible future reforms.
