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

Product Description:

In this sophisticated book David Kershaw places company law in its economic, business, and social context, making more accessible and relevant the cases, statutes, and other forms of regulation. A running case study provides a practical perspective.

Review:

Review from previous edition The material is put together in a very refreshing way with excellent commentary; the questions are invaluable for seminar-based work. (Dr Paul Omar, Senior Lecturer, Sussex Law School)

Kershaw takes seriously the aim of providing a theoretically grounded analysis, remaining accessible to students, with relevant questions to consider. (Chris Riley, Reader in Law, Durham University)

The book is very readable, and the focus on 'real-world' scenarios and illustrations adds a dimension that is often lacking. (Dr Sandra Frisby, Baker & McKenzie Associate Professor and Reader in Company and Commercial Law, University of Nottingham)

If I could go back in time I would have definitely purchased the book; it would have assisted me greatly. (Jamie Cowan, undergraduate law student, University of Hull and Antwerpen)

This is an excellent book which adopts a contextual approach to the subject with some very interesting excerpts from key academic articles. I also enjoy the use of the case study as it enables students to contextualise a lot of the issues. (Mr David Cabrelli, Senior Lecturer in Commercial Law, the University of Edinburgh)

Students who read this book emerge from their course equipped with an excellent understanding of company law, as well as an ability to critique the law in an intelligent and knowledgeable manner. Kershaw's contribution will be a welcome addition to both undergraduate and postgraduate courses, as well as an excellent point of reference for the seasoned researcher. (Dr Justin Borg-Barthet, writing in The Modern Law Review, Volume 73, May 2011)
