This service offers practitioners and researchers detailed explanatory commentary on the provisions of the Corporations Act 2001(Cth). Reflecting how the law works in practice, Robson’s Annotated Corporations Legislation also includes related legislative materials for confidence in a professionally maintained practice collection.
Australia’s corporations legislation is particularly complex, both in its wording and in how its application in practice has been interpreted by the courts. This new service offers clarification from lawyers working with, and analysing, the law.
Complementing the full text of the Corporations Act 2001, the service offers accompanying section-by-section annotations which combine analysis of judicial construction with discussion of the policy and practice which affect a section in daily operation. In order that subscribers have a full practice guide, the authored cross-references and discussion for relevant provisions also address ASIC’s extensive guidance materials.
Authored by a broadly experienced team, and reviewed by highly regarded corporations law authority, Justice Barrett of the Supreme Court of New South Wales, Robson’s Annotated Corporations Legislation is a major law resource.
