Virtual Issue - Private Law

In putting together this free virtual issue on private law, the editors of Legal Studies are drawing attention to the richness of scholarship that can be found within the pages of the journal. This virtual issue highlights a selection of commercial law and other private law articles published since January 2012. They address the purpose of corporations (Attenborough), corporate insolvency (Finch), corporate governance (Keay), corporate defamation (Chan), corporate environmental responsibility (Bradshaw), and, beyond the field of company law, the restraint of trade doctrine (Lucey) and copyright law (Griffiths). This is the first virtual issue of Legal Studies and further issues will appear in other fields reflecting the range, depth and diversity of scholarship within the journal.
