Leading commentary and analysis of Australian and international corporate and securities law and the relevant regulatory regimes

About the Journal
The Company and Securities Law Journal (ISSN: 0729-2775) is well-known for its high-quality articles written by leading specialists in corporate, securities and takeovers law. It provides both scholarly and practical perspectives on a range of dynamic and important subjects of interest to the Australian legal and business communities.

Whether you are a lawyer, accountant, company director, stockbroker or academic, there is detailed coverage to suit your information needs. Topics range from comments on the lack of confidence in the Australian securities markets and how an increased effort by regulators to improve enforcement of existing laws prohibiting market misconduct is needed to restore confidence, to insider trading case law dealing with “generally available” and “materiality” carve-outs and articles around the question, “Do we need regulation in the way in which litigation funders should operate?”
