The Law of Business Structures provides a comprehensive but simplified treatment of the different types of business structures in South African law. The book examines the law of partnerships, business trusts, close corporations and companies, whether large or small and whether formed for a profit-making or a non-profit-making objective. The chapters on company law provide a detailed discussion and explanation of core company law topics. Discussions of modern corporate governance best practices, insider trading and market manipulation are also included.

Excessive theoretical analysis has been avoided, but important legal concepts and principles are nevertheless carefully explained and analysed. Case law and references to legislation have been kept to a minimum, but discussions of the important cases and relevant legislation are included. A glossary of important terms, intended to provide background and guidance to students, is included, and sample questions are provided for each chapter of the book.

Lecturer support material on CD-ROM: Detailed lecture slides covering almost all the material in the book, together with detailed questions and answers, is available on request from your Law Academic Consultant.
