The Routledge Handbook of Corporate Law provides an accessible overview of current research in the field, from an international and comparative perspective.

In recent years there has been an explosion of corporate law research, as this area of law continues to develop rapidly throughout the world. Traditionally, Anglo–American corporate law theory has dominated debates and publications; however, this handbook readdresses the balance by exploring the treatment of corporate law in both Europe and Asia, as well developments in the US and UK. Bringing together a wide range of key thinkers in the field, this volume is divided into three main parts:

  • Thinking about corporate law
  • Corporate law principles and governance
  • Some cross-cultural comparisons

Providing up-to-date and authoritative articles covering all the key aspects of corporate law, this reference work is essential reading for advanced students, scholars and practitioners in the field.
