    Joske's Law and Procedure at Meetings in Australia eleventh edition explores the various sources of law that govern meetings in Australia: common law, the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and statutory law governing meetings of unit title and strata title companies in all Australian jurisdictions.

    Covering such topics as the convocation of meetings through notice and quorum, procedures, minutes and the effect of irregularity in proceedings, this title will inform anyone who participates in, or provides advice in connection to, meetings in Australia.

    The book is divided logically into three parts, each containing up-to-date legislation and recent case law:

    • Part I discusses the common law of meetings and the standard rules of meetings procedure.
    • Part II explores the law of meetings in a company context, including the relevant provisions of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth).
    • Part III comprises a thorough presentation of statutory law as it relates to meetings of unit title and strata title companies throughout Australia.

    The eleventh edition is fully updated and its key features include:

    • a new chapter on Standing Orders, added to Part I
    • coverage of significant developments in relation to the law governing proprietors' meetings, including the enactment of the Owners Corporation  Act 2006 (Vic) and commencement of the Unit Titles Management Act 2011 (ACT) and the subsequent adoption of the Unit Title Schemes (Management Modules) Regulations (NT)
    • enhanced coverage of the status of minutes of meetings including, specifically, the result of the High Court case Australian Securities and Investments Commission v Hellicar [2012].

    Joske's Law and Procedure at Meetings in Australia, eleventh edition is an essential reference to have at hand when navigating the requirements of the law relating to meetings.
