Cassidy Corporations Law

The purpose of this text is to provide a teaching/ learning tool within a semester corporations law unit. The use of a plain English writing style, combined with fuller case extracts makes corporations law more accessible to those who study or practise in the area of corporations law. Since the publication of the second edition there have been significant changes in corporations law. From a legislative perspective, important changes have been effected in regard to the law pertaining to executive officers and directors (in particular their remuneration and financial reporting). Judicially, this period has been marked by a considerable number of important cases pertaining to directors’ liability arising out of, inter alia, high profile cases, including the James Hardie cases. These cases have provided guidance as to the applicability of both statutory and equitable directors’ duties, but also clarified the procedural and substantive law aspects of the penalties flowing from breaches of such duties. The coverage of the chapters is broad and as well reflecting the content of most courses in Australia, will be a useful reference in any practitioner's library.

The author's explanation ofthe relevant cases is clear and easy to understand and the caseextracts chosen are pertinent and invaluable to an understanding of thebasic principles of corporations law. The text would be of particular use to those practitioners who dealinfrequently with corporations law, providing a useful and thoroughoutline of the relevant principles.overall, a good guide to corporations law in Australia. Ethos, Law Society of ACT, June 2008 Although this is presented as a book of text and essential cases it isan extraordinarily useful little book. I come to it as a person who inhis heyday was extremely familiar with the ins and outs of theCompanies Act 1936 (NSW) (and 1961, 1981), interstate equivalents, andlater uniform Acts. However, I find it extremely difficult to relatewhat I learnt then with the current provision of the Corporations Actwhich might find itself in s 3417ZVH. I have found this book extremelyhandy in going straight away to the appropriate heading via the indexand seeing the current provisions spelt out very clearly. I suspectthat people coming into corporations law for the first time would findit equally helpful. Apart from very clear expositions of the basicprinciples of corporations law, the extracts from the cases that areset out cut to the quick. One does not have to read five or six pagesof text before getting to the key points in the judgment, but oftenonly two or three paragraphs of the leading judgments will be set out.Moreover, the judgments that are set out are not always the ones thatare featured in the classic textbooks but include extracts from modern,yet obscure cases in which the judge has very clearly set out inprecise words the applicable principle. Although the book is designedspecifically to meet the needs of students undertaking one semestercase based course in corporations law, it is, as I have said, generallyuseful. Justice Peter Young, Alternative Law Journal, Vol 79 (2005) [This book’s] purpose is to cover the major topics of corporations lawand explain fundamental concepts within those areas. Acknowledgingthose limited aims, it succeeds very well. Each chapter begins with anoverview. The text flows easily with approporiate, logical headings andsubheadings. Professor Cassidy has an admirable ability to expressherself clearly and concisely so potentially difficult topics can beeasily understood by students and readers unfamiliar with the subject.The book contains many case extracts - around 60 in total. Thejudgments selected are relevant and each passage is preceded by aheadnote where the important facts are outlined and the judgment of thecourt explained. It follows that the cases selected will, I expect,help the reader more fully understand the critical issues underpinningour corporations law. Professor Cassidy believes the case extracts makethe book more useful for legal practitioners in preparing submissionsand opinions, and I agree with her. … [T]he book easily reaches thegoal it sets out to achieve, that is, to explain the corporations lawclearly and well, and in plain English. Those qualities will make it avaluable aid for both students and practitioners. Christopher Crawford, (2005) 26 Qld Lawyer
