School of Law

Legal Capital In The UK Following The Companies Act 2006

23 November 2009 | 5.30pm - 7.00pm | Seminar
Business School, University of Leeds

This is part of the public lecture series organised by the Centre for Business Law and Practice, in the School of Law, University of Leeds. These events attract taught and research postgraduates, undergraduates, staff and local practitioners.

Jennifer Payne is a Reader in Corporate Finance Law, University of Oxford.

Her lecture will analyse the changes to the legal capital rules in the Companies Act 2006 which substantially deregulates the legal capital rules for private companies but makes no significant changes to the capital regime in place for public companies. It will consider the purpose and efficacy of these rules and will argue that a preferable regime would deregulate this issue and leave creditor protection to contract law, and to insolvency provisions in the event of the company's insolvency.
