Law in society: The corporate governance debate
The National Legal Eagle
  • John P.G. Lessing, Bond University
Extract: Corporate governance has to do with the way in which companies are managed and controlled. It has become a major issue during the last two years. It has moved from the business pages of the newspapers to the front pages. We have had President Bush speaking about it - as well as our Prime Minister, John Howard, and the leader of the Federal opposition. They have been promising a much tougher approach to corporate abuses and crime. (Though John Howard has also said that he does not want to unnecessarily burden business)
