Content

Most businesses in Australia are conducted through the corporate form. An understanding of Australian corporations' law is therefore an important aspect of any postgraduate qualification with a commercial law or business focus. This unit provides students with an excellent grounding in the key aspects of Australian corporations' law, including the formation of companies under Australian law, the legal rules affecting the financing of companies, and how the law regulates the relationship between Australian companies and their directors, shareholders and creditors.
