Corporations Legislation 2008 includes the Corporations Act 2001, Australian Securities and Investments Commission Act 2001 and associated Acts and Regulations fully consolidated to 1 January 2008.
Designed for use by practitioners, business professionals and anyone with an interest in Corporations Law, the Corporations Act 2001 is supplemented with key section annotations by Jason Harris, providing readers with an additional level of guidance. The sections selected have been the subject of substantial judicial consideration. Where the judicial consideration of a number of sections has considerable overlap, only the more practically significant section has been annotated. Cases discussed in the annotations have been selected for their precedent value, the practical point covered or novel issues dealt with in the decision, with an emphasis on Australian cases. In some instances, due to the sheer number of decisions, only the most recent cases have been covered.
In addition, Professor Robert Baxt highlights significant corporations law developments since January 2007 and discusses possible developments in 2008
