Why you should attend:
'Very important, but far too difficult for non-specialists' is how company 
law is typically viewed. This course distils the key legal principles which 
govern corporate activity for those who lack the time to follow lengthy 
conventional legal courses. It also goes beyond setting out the formal 
legislative framework to examine how these rules are applied in practice in 
British companies, featuring copious real life examples and looking at 
actual company documents. The course also identifies sources for 
researching companies and their directors.

On completing the course, you will:
- understand what company law provisions are intended to achieve
- be able to distinguish the theoretical legal position from business 
reality
- be able to decipher corporate legal jargon
- be able to assess which types of company information are available to 
researchers - and which are not
- be able to trace and use company documents - a vital tool for analysing a 
business
- be aware of the changes being proposed by the Government - the biggest 
ever shake-up of company law
