Assessment Item 1: Mini-Research Essay

 

What exactly is the ‘corporate veil’ and does Australian law adequately address abuses of the corporate form? Give specific examples and refer to relevant legislation and case law when you discuss your answer.

 

 

 

Please note:

 

  • The maximum word length for this essay is 1,500 words. This is a research exercise, so you are expected to go beyond the prescribed textbook by locating and critically analysing primary and secondary sources. Also, follow corporate scandals that are reported in the media or mentioned in Parliament. Essays which do not demonstrate a research effort and/or which do not use the full allowable word limit are likely to be given lower marks; provide all your references.

 

  • Assignments must be submitted online via Learnline. No other form of submission, (such as email) will be accepted.  An assignment submitted via the draft submission link (SafeAssign check) will not be accepted as a final submission and will not be marked.  It is your responsibility to submit your final assignment in the correct way – ie, via the final submission point on Learnline;

 

  • Either of the CDU Harvard or AGLC referencing styles may be used, as long as you choose one style and use it consistently;

 

  • Plagiarism or collusion will be detected and acted upon (penalised) in accordance with CDU’s Academic Integrity Policy. You are expected to read, refer to and cite various primary and secondary sources in the course of writing your essay.  However, it is also important that you explain key arguments and points in your own words.  Avoid excessive word-for-word quotation of other literature.  Do not paraphrase another author’s work too close to the original (changing a few words in a sentence from a book or article and passing it off as your own writing is still plagiarism).
