Company Law is one area of law that has diverse application in various legal jobs and areas of expertise. From corporate lawyers to directors of companies, many people need to have a grip on company law.
As companies have become the primary vehicles of wealth creation and organization of economic activities in our society, the complex body of law that governs these entities is a critical factor in the success of our country and welfare of the people. The experts in this law plays a very important role in corporate governance, dispute resolution and efficient management of economic value generation in the world.
Whether you work in the general corporate team in a law firm, or work as a compliance specialist, working in commercial litigation, arbitration or even working for a company in the in-house legal team, knowledge of company law is appreciated and useful everywhere.
The Act is pretty vast and it is quite difficult to wrap your head around it. Even associates in top law firms stumble from time to time when it comes to company law. The books are fat and intimidating.
