Key areas covered include: * Principles of share capital * Issuing shares * Rights attaching to shares * Transferring shares * Removing capital * Evaluation of the changes under the Companies Act 2006 The work also considers case law doctrines such as improper purposes for issuing shares and case law on those provisions which have not changed but continue to be relevant This second edition is fully updated with analysis of all the latest case law on these provisions.

White and Brunstad's Secured Transactions - CasebookPlus Teaching Materials

White and Brunstad's Secured Transactions - CasebookPlus Teaching Materials

Author: James J. White, G. Eric Brunstad Jr Format: Mixed media product Release Date: 30/06/2019

White and Brunstad's Secured Transactions: Teaching Materials, 4th deals with both the basics of secured transactions under Article Nine of the UCC and some of the most complex modern transactions such as repos and securitizations. To offset the complexities of the subject matter, the authors have made this text extremely user-friendly. Every chapter has extensive expository introductory material to help the student get oriented. This manageably sized book is organized by transaction (e.g., loans on equipment, loans on inventory, etc.), rather than by code section (e.g., attachment, perfection, etc.), so that students can see how various transactions develop, rather than learning about sections of the code out of context. A course on Article Nine offers the opportunity for the student to acquire an extensive and vitally important commercial law vocabulary, and this book maximizes that opportunity. In addition to extensively revising all of the former chapters, the new edition adds a new introductory chapter on the history of secured transactions and the interpretation of Article Nine (including use of the official comments), and a concluding chapter on the theory of Article Nine. This tracks modern curricular trends, including increased interest in courses on legislation and more detailed consideration of methods of statutory interpretation.

The Cambridge Handbook of the Law of the Sharing Economy

The Cambridge Handbook of the Law of the Sharing Economy

Author: Nestor M. Davidson Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/06/2019

This Handbook grapples conceptually and practically with what the sharing economy - which includes entities ranging from large for-profit firms like Airbnb, Uber, Lyft, Taskrabbit, and Upwork to smaller, non-profit collaborative initiatives - means for law, and how law, in turn, is shaping critical aspects of the sharing economy. Featuring a diverse set of contributors from many academic disciplines and countries, the book compiles the most important, up-to-date research on the regulation of the sharing economy. The first part surveys the nature of the sharing economy, explores the central challenge of balancing innovation and regulatory concerns, and examines the institutions confronting these regulatory challenges, and the second part turns to a series of specific regulatory domains, including labor and employment law, consumer protection, tax, and civil rights. This groundbreaking work should be read by anyone interested in the dynamic relationship between law and the sharing economy.

Bailment

Bailment

Bailment is common practice that occurs every day on a variety of scales. From valet parking to delivering oil rigs, knowledge of the legal relationship between the bailor and the bailee can be vital in protecting the interests of clients where possession of property changes, but ownership remains the same. Practice in this field is often complex due to tensions with Common Law doctrines of tort and contract, which can affect both the substantive rights of the parties and the remedies available to them. This book therefore, seeks to provide a clear, concise and practical insight in how to manage Bailment and includes the following topics: The nature of bailment. Bailment distinguished from other property transactions Bailment distinguished from other causes of action Title to sue in bailment Duties of a bailor/rights of bailee Duties of a bailee/rights of bailor Reliance on contractual terms Conflict of laws Practice, procedure and remedies Bailment includes relevant case law as well as commentary from a team of lawyers with significant experience of this topic. It is therefore, an authoritative reference for any commercial lawyer, or academic, with an interest in the modern legislation around Bailment.
