Modern Law of Meetings comprehensively deals with the law and practice of company, insolvency and local authority meetings, as well as meetings to conduct business generally. It provides a thorough analysis of the meeting process, from deciding when a meeting is needed, the convening of a meeting, its conduct and management and the keeping of lawful and adequate records.

Pre-1889 British Legal Cases

This book contains edited versions of thirty British legal cases involving accounting issues decided from 1849-1888. These cases are a valuable source of information about the development of accounting principles and practices in nineteenth-century Great Britain. The thirty cases show that the court decisions involved a rich variety of accounting issues. In some cases courts upset private contractual stipulations regarding accounting and dividend matters. In others, management was held to have used incorrect principles in computing profits. Whether or not a contract or management decision was upset, the courts often discussed at some length the principles that management should apply in the preparation of balance sheets or income statements. It is therefore obvious that in resolving issues of equity among participants in British companies, the courts were applying normative accounting principles.

Long recognized as the standard work on the topic, The Oil and Gas Lease in Canada discusses the legal document that determines the process by which a freehold mineral owner may grant oil companies the right to search for and produce minerals. Subjected to ongoing litigation and governmental regulation, the Lease continues to evolve as the body of common law surrounding it grows and develops. The substances covered by the Lease are unique in that their occurrence is uncertain until discovery, and they are capable of moving from place to place within a reservoir. These qualities have led to the development of new legal concepts, basically creating a separate and distinct branch of the law. This fourth edition of The Oil and Gas Lease in Canada guides the reader through the complexities of the Lease and the legal issues attached to it. John Bishop Ballem brings the text up to date on recent developments, including changes and additions to the terms of the Lease, the effect of recent court decisions, and the growth of coal bed methane as an energy source. Of particular interest is his examination of what takes place following a Lease's involuntary termination. Ballem deals with specific examples of this situation, detailing its consequences for both individual mineral owners and companies, as well as for future judicial pronouncements. The fourth edition of The Oil and Gas Lease in Canada is indispensable for mineral owners, oil companies, land agents, lawyers, and legal institutions.

The all-new revised fourth edition of Banking Law in the United States positions the text to address three challenges — the need to maintain an historic record and statement of existing law, the need to document changes made to existing law and to report the deployment, implementation and interpretation of new laws. Just as new laws in 1989, 1990 and 1991 had significant impact on banking, so new laws, adopted in rapid succession in 2008, 2009 and 2010, have altered the legal landscape in which banks and other financial institutions operate. The Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, adopted in 2010, set the stage not only for new agencies, new regulatory authorities and new market restrictions, but also for extensive interpretive regulation and judicial interpretations implementing such changes. As a result, the all new 4th edition positions Banking Law in the United States to accommodate legal and market changes and whatever secondary, reactive responses occur in the law and the environment in which it operates. This new edition continues to meet the needs of practitioners, courts, legislators and regulators and those interested in better under­standing the breadth and diversity and dynamic nature of banking law in the United States.
