Hours & Credits
OverviewIn this subject, students are introduced to the principal features of modern corporations and securities law. The scope of this area of law is wide, and the statute (the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth)) dominates. This subject aims to both situate the law contextually and emphasise the practical operation of the law in its social setting. Topics include the constitutional and administrative context of the Corporations Act, incorporation and its effects, corporate governance, various methods of financing (including equity and debt), and external administration. This subject meets the requirements of the Council of Legal Education for admission to practice in Victoria in the area of Company Law.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
