Sealy & Worthington’s Text, Cases, and Materials in Company Law clearly explains the fundamental structure of company law and provides a concise introduction to each different aspect of the subject. The materials are carefully selected and well supported by commentary so that the logic of the doctrinal or policy argument is unambiguously laid out. Notes and questions appear periodically throughout the text to provoke persistent analysis and debate, and to enable students to test their understanding of the issues as the topics unfold. This text covers a wide range of sources, and provides intelligent and thought-provoking commentary in a succinct format. It is invaluable to all those who need vital materials and expert observations on company law in one volume. This eleventh edition brings: complete updating of statutory, regulatory, and case law materials, including the major changes introduced by SBEEA 2015, and also changes to the various corporate governance codes requiring ‘comply or explain’ adherence; major rewriting of Chapter 2 (Corporate personality and limited liability) in the light of Prest v Petrodel Resources Ltd (2013, SC): ie changed structure, considerable new text, and new cases; major rewriting of Chapter 3 (Corporate activity and legal liability) to take into account a number of recent cases: ie changed structure, considerable new text, and new cases; additional coverage of statutory derivative actions, with excerpts from recent leading HCt and CA cases; and additional coverage of insolvency issues, including notes on recent leading HCt and CA cases.
