This major new work comprehensively deals with the law and practice of company, insolvency, local authority and public 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. It deals with related topics such as defamatory statements, breach of the peace at public meetings and the various means of challenging decisions taken at meetings. A new section on local authority meetings includes the fundamental changes introduced by the Local Government Act 2000 to the way local councils conduct business at meetings and make decisions. Additionally, the issue of public meetings is addressed covering the implications of the Human Rights legislation and the recent impact of the Anti Social Behaviour Act 2003. The Modern Law of Meetings is written by an experienced team of authors and is the only up-to-date, authoritative book available on the law and practice of meetings.
