The second edition of this text incorporates the latest changes to Australian corporations law, up to and including the Corporations Act 2001 and the Financial Services Reform Act 2001. Like the 1st edition, this text is written particularly for undergraduate law students. The book introduces students to Australian corporate law in a way that is informed by theory and policy. Throughout the book the authors draw upon materials from fields such as economics, sociology and politics to provide a contextually relevant account of modern corporate law. Ample references and pointers are provided to policy debates, contemporary issues, and to further reading. The authors bring considerable experience in interdisciplinary corporate law teaching and research. The authors aim to stimulate the reader into further critical analysis of corporate law issues, and to equip them with the capacity to respond in an informed way to future changes and developments. The book also encourages the reader to independently pursue further research in areas of corporate law. Each of the 25 chapters has been revised and updated. The book deals with:

Introduction - the history of corporate law, and key themes and perspectives. Corporate Structures and Regulation - including the structure of Australian corporate law; ASIC's role and powers; and the role of auditors. Corporate Obligations - including corporate capacity; contractual and criminal liability. Corporate Governance - membership and meetings; directors' duties; shareholders' rights. Corporate Finance - including share and debt capital, the Managed Investments Act 1998, and fundraising. Securities and Takeovers Corporate Rescues and Winding Up
