Module overview

The aim of this module is to situate Accounting and Management students in the Company Law environment where accountants and business managers typically work. Students will consider the legal frameworks of the commercial world to gain an understanding of how and why businesses are organised in particular ways. The students will examine the different legal forms available for commercial entities, so that they understand the implications of corporate and non-corporate businesses. Students will consider the legal liabilities of business enterprises and the responsibilities of professional business accountants, auditors and managers. The aim of the module is to equip students with knowledge and understanding of various aspects of Company Law so that they are able to apply that knowledge in their work. In particular students will be posed with problem scenarios that they may encounter as financial advisors and business managers in the commercial world.
