Company Law in Context is an ideal main text for company law and corporate governance courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. In this sophisticated book, David Kershaw combines commentary and explanation (55%) with the primary case and statutory materials (45%). The book places the study of company law in its economic, business, and social context in order to make more accessible and relevant the cases, statutes, and other forms of regulation that make up company law. One technique deployed by the book to contextualize company law is the use of a simple case study that tracks, through the different chapters of the book, the development and expansion of a business - from sole trader to listed company.
Online Resource Center
Company law in context is accompanied by an Online Resource Center offering the following features for students:

- podcasts accompanying each chapter, to be used when the subject is first studied and during revision
- interactive ('flashcard') glossary, so that students can familiarize themselves with and test themselves on the complex terminology and jargon of company law
- pointers as to how to approach selected questions posed in the book, to ensure students benefit fully from the book's critical and contextual approach
- timeline illustrating implementation of Companies Act 2006
- The following resources are also provided for lecturers:
