About Company Law


Company Law is the collection of various legal aspects that govern the formation, running and winding up of a Company. The Indian Company Law is governed by the Companies Act, 2013 and to a certain extent, the Companies Act, 1956. The subject enumerates rules, regulations and procedures to be followed by corporate entities such as Incorporation of Companies, Issue of capital Instrumentsholding of meetings, composition of Directors, etc. Compliance under Companies Act, 2013 is mandatory for all corporate entities, failing which the Corporates will face penal actions.

Company Law is one of the core areas of practice and subject of expertise for a Company Secretary. At this level you will be studying various provisions under the Companies Act, its Rules and regulations. At the next level you will be expected to analyse corporate issues faced by Companies and provide solutions, and solve case studies. Hence understanding and being thorough with the Provisions of Companies Act is of utmost importance.

The best approach to study for the Company Law paper is

  • Start studies at least 7-8 months before exams 
  • It is highly recommended to refer to the Bare Act for studying Company Law. The ICSI material is also very helpful as the procedures and rules are given in a systematic order. A combination of studies from the Bare Act and ICSI study material is recommended 
  • Prepare your own notes: Company Law is all about procedures, rules and regulations. It is understood best when you make your own study notes in the simplest possible language to remember every provision along with Section Numbers 
  • Updates: Law is a very dynamic subject with many amendments, circulars and notifications. Keep updating yourselves with any such changes to be able to tackle tricky questions related to amendments applicable to your exam. Further, you may visit websites of Ministry of Corporate Affairs to access any amendments
