This addition to the renowned Clarendon Law Series offers a concise and stimulating introduction to company law. Professor Davies sets out the five key functions of company law: the creation of separate legal personality for the company; the conferment of limited liability on the company's shareholders; the provision of centralised management; the allocation of control rights over the company; and the creation of transferable shares. However, the purpose of company law is not simply to implement these policies as they all have costs as well as benefits. The role of the law is therefore to maximise the benefits whilst minimising the costs. The author examines these crucial policy choices within the context of the central relationships with which company law deals (or ought to deal). These are the relations between senior management and the shareholders; those between majority and minority shareholders; and those between company controllers (whether managers or shareholders) and non-shareholder stakeholders in the company. This new and comprehensive introductory volume is an essential resource for all those studying company law.

Associated Ship and South African Admiralty Jurisdiction

The Admiralty Jurisdiction Regulation Act 105 of 1983 was a radical and far-reaching, as well as overdue, modernisation of South African admiralty law. Described as 'bold, innovative and comprehensive', it introduced - for the first time anywhere in the world - the provisions enabling an action to be pursued by way of the arrest of an associated ship rather than the ship in respect of which the claim lay. This work, by one of South Africa's pre-eminent shipping lawyers, analyses the nature of this novel action. That involves a review of how the jurisdiction came about; its nature and impact; the problems to which it gives rise and the making of some modest suggestions concerning the road ahead.
