Company law is a growth area more so, probably, than any other area in law. It reaches out into other areas of law and, of course, new areas of law are always emerging, for example auditors negligence, investment law and the FSA and administration orders. The book gives a full analysis of the following areas: the company and other business organisations; types of company; setting up the company; managing the company; reconstituting the company; and supervision of company law.
The third edition takes into account several important changes in the law such as the social responsibilities of companies, the debate on the Cadbury, Greenbury and Hampel Committee Reports.
I liked the snappy style and the concise treatment of areas of company law that students usually find difficult. I would be happy to refer students to this text. -- David Crouch, College of Law.
