Australian Corporation Law Legislation

Updated up to ten times a year to include new and amending legislation issued during the year, this work provides the most thorough coverage of all legislation relevant to corporate regulation. Outlines of each chapter of the Corporations Act, and of the ASIC Act and other relevant legislation, explain concisely how the regulatory scheme works. With the inclusion of the Federal Court (Corporations) Rules and relevant extracts of state and territory Supreme Court Rules, the service is unique in its presentation of primary resource materials. Valuable features also include a concise commentary on the National Corporations legislation and detailed explanations of the corporation law's history, the format and content of the new national legislation, and the administrative structure and functions of the national legislation and enforcement agencies. The work also includes cross-references to Austin & Black's Annotations to the Corporations Act. It also includes an ASIC Class Orders and Regulatory Guides table which is indexed by sections of the Corporations Act. Its comprehensive finding tables list correlations between former provisions of the Corporations Law and the major changes to the Act including CLERPA, FSRA and CLERP9.
