Company law in the European Union: Harmonisation and/or subsidiarity?
The reform of the law relating to corporate enterprise is a topical issue in many jurisdictions. Consequently, there is an opportunity to rethink and reassess our attitude to company law. This journal is devoted to the scholarly analysis of the law and practice relating to corporations on an international and comparative basis. Leading scholars from around the world have designed this quarterly publication, under the leadership of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in London, to provide an international vehicle for the analysis of the law and its application in so far as it pertains to the birth, life and death of corporate enterprises. The General Editor of this new journal, Professor Barry A K Rider, states that its aim is to commission and solicit papers that are “reflective, radical, constructive and analytical”.
The following articles are published in this first issue: Conflicts of interest, Chinese walls and investment management: Gerald McCormack; Company Law in the European Union: Harmonisation and/or Subsidiarity?: Klaus J Hopt; The Five-Act approach to entrepreneurial law reform in South Africa: J J Henning; Sufficiently serious? Judicial restraint in tortuous liability of public authorities and the European influence: Mads Andenas and Duncan Fairgrieve.
A sister publication of the International Corporate Law Bulletin, the primary language for publication of the journal is English, however the breadth and depth of the Editorial Board indicates that the journal is concerned with a far wider context than the English-speaking world.
ICCLJ aspires to be regarded as a scholarly journal and consequently all contributions are critically refereed. The journal is indexed / abstracted in the Legal Journals Index.
