This course provides students with an advanced and integrated understanding of the body of legal rules which regulate companies and other popular business forms in Australia, including partnerships and sole traders. Topics covered include the management and control of both companies and partnerships; the process by which companies and partnerships transact; and the process by which companies and partnerships are both initiated and brought to an end. Detailed consideration is also given to the notion of corporate personality; the means by which companies can be financed; and the rights of creditors, shareholders and other stakeholders. In addition to detailed knowledge of this complex area of law, this course also provides students with advanced understanding of the principles and concepts which underlie the way companies are regulated in Australia and the way changes to those principles can lead to law reform. Contemporary developments in Company Law are considered in this light, and the implications of these developments for professional practice are explored.
