Company Law in Context Summary

Company Law in Context: Text and Materials by David Kershaw

Company Law in Context is an ideal main text for company law and corporate governance courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. In this sophisticated book, David Kershaw combines commentary and explanation (60%) with the primary case and statutory materials (40%). The book places the study of company law in its economic, business, and social context in order to make more accessible and relevant the cases, statutes, and other forms of regulation that make up company law. One technique deployed by the book to contextualise company law is the use of a simple case study that tracks, through the different chapters of the book, the development and expansion of a business - from sole trader to listed company. Online Resource Centre Company Law in Context is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre offering the following features for students: - twice-yearly updates to changes in cases and legislation (particularly important given the recent implementation of the Companies Act 2006) - annotated web links to key online sources, directing students to the most accurate, up-to-date and relevant information on the web - podcasts accompanying each chapter, to be used when the subject is first studied and during revision - interactive ('flashcard') glossary, so that students can familiarise themselves with and test themselves on the complex terminology and jargon of company law The following resources are also provided for lecturers: - diagrams and charts in PowerPoint to show in lectures and seminars to facilitate students' understanding of challenging cases and concepts
