We would like to congratulate two of our Advisory Board members:
Michael Murray, Legal Director of the IPA, has been appointed a member of CAMAC (the Corporations and Markets Advisory Committee). CAMAC is established under Part 9 of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission Act 2001 (ASIC Act) to advise the Minister on matters concerning companies, financial products and services, the efficiency of financial markets and the making, amendment, operation, administration, or reform of the Corporations Act 2001 and the ASIC Act.
Professor Andrew Keay, Professor of Corporate and Commercial Law at the University of Leeds, has a new book out, The Corporate Objective (Corporations, Globalisation and the Law Series, Edward Elgar Publishing, May 2011), which has received the following acclaim:
“This is legal scholarship of the finest kind, concerned with an issue of supreme political, economic and social importance. Professor Keay takes the debate on the object of the modern public corporation by the scruff of its neck and skilfully navigates between the Scylla and Charybdis of the shareholder/stakeholder debate. This book, characterised by admirable analytical clarity and a huge amount of research, faithfully summarises the debate hitherto, and propels us to the next stage with a powerful argument, which challenges, effectively, both the stakeholder and shareholder theories.” – Harry Rajak, University of Sussex School of Law
We have ordered it for our library and can’t wait to get our hands on it.
Well done to both
