Certificate in Company Law 1

Company law provides the legislative framework for the structure and operation of companies registered in Ireland, whether domestic or foreign. The programme is designed to equip students with a thorough and integrated knowledge and understanding of the concepts, principles and rules of Company Law in Ireland in relation to formation and operation of the private limited company, and to assist the student in developing the analytical skills required to apply their legal knowledge to various problem scenarios. On completion of the course, learners will be able to distinguish between the different types of companies recognised by the Companies Act 2014 (the private company limited by shares (“LTD”); the designated activity company (“DAC”); the public limited company (“PLC”); the company limited by guarantee (“CLG”); unlimited companies (“UC”), and external companies) and partnerships and sole traders, and be able to critically analyse the advantages and disadvantages associated with the various types of business organisations. Students will be able to comprehend the importance of the promotion, formation and registration requirements of companies and the consequences of incorporation for a business. They will be able to critically evaluate the rights and duties of corporate members and shareholders and demonstrate an integrated and applied knowledge of the laws regulating corporate management and administration. Students will also develop the capacity to demonstrate an ability to research aspects of company law either independently or as part of a group and apply the knowledge gained to formulate solutions to case studies involving company law.
