In this subject students are introduced to the principal features of modern corporations and securities law. The scope of this area of law is wide and the statute (the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth)) dominates. There is a concern both to situate the law contextually and to emphasise the practical operation of the law in its social setting. Topics include the constitutional and administrative context of the Corporations Act, incorporation and its effects, corporate governance, various methods of financing including equity and debt, and external administration. This subject meets the requirements of the Council of Legal Education for admission to practice in Victoria in the area of Company Law.
