Description

A concise, practical approach to teaching corporations law

This product is the accompanying write-in workbook to the Corporations Law: Concepts, Cases, and Culture textbook.

Corporations Law: Concepts, Cases, and Culture examines the three distinct and overlapping areas relating to corporate law.

  • Concepts explores the main concepts and theories behind the law, rules and principles relevant to companies.
  • Cases focuses on key case law underpinning the corporation and provides an insight into how modern company law has developed.
  • Culture examines the corporate context with a focus on corporate governance and regulation, and how cultural shortcomings can lead to corporate misconduct.

This write-in workbook provides targeted exercises to allow students to develop strong practical skills. It takes a scaffolded approach, starting with easy activities and building to more complex tasks within chapters, and as the book progresses. These activities can be used in tutorials or for student ‘at-home’ self-assessment.
