Abstract

Australian corporate law is a mix of federal and state jurisdiction. In the period 1999 to 2000 a series of decisions of the High Court of Australia challenged the existing structure of corporate law. This paper provides an overview of the federal structure of corporate law, refers to the judgments which have challenged that structure, and examines the possibilities for reform.
