Corporations Law 2 LAW607


Areas of Law not covered in LAW305 Corporations Law 1 are analysed in this unit - with particular emphasis on those aspects related to the larger public corporation. This includes an examination of the structure and market for corporate control through takeovers and other forms of arrangements, an appreciation of the securities and futures industry focusing on its regulation, and well as managed investments. Students are expected to develop an understanding of the legislation, administrative regime and judicial decisions surrounding this area. The policy objectives behind legislative intervention are also examined. Possible reforms and comparative regimes are also discussed.
