Lists of required texts/readings
- Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) (Butterworths, 2022)
- Melissa Naylor, Law of Investments and Financial Markets (Thomson Reuters, 3rd ed, 2019).
- Ashley Black and Pamela Hanrahan, Securities and Financial Services Law (LexisNexis Butterworths, 10th ed, 2021)
Please note that both prescribed texts and the recommended text will be available to students through the UC Library's Short Loan system. The recommended text (Authors: Ashley Black and Pamela Hanrahan) provides students with more detailed reference material than is generally required for the purposes of this unit, but it does provide a detailed commentary on the findings of the Banking Royal Commission (2018) and is a very authoritative resource. Students will need constant access throughout the semester to a current copy of the relevant legislation above (i.e. the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth)). Please note also that in the first weeks of this unit additional materials will be provided to students by the lecturer via Canvas.
Otherwise, unit readings and resources may be found by going to http://webpac.canberra.edu.au/screens/unitbooklist.html (for print materials) and https://docutek.canberra.edu.au/eres/courseindex.aspx?error=&page=search(for electronic materials) where these have been provided.
