Horsley’s Meetings: Procedure, Law and Practice is the most comprehensive guide to meeting procedure in Australia. It offers a complete in-depth guide to both the law and practice of meetings.

Each chapter contains an authoritative exposition and analysis of the relevant cases and legislation, followed by helpful guidelines, checklists and suggestions for the conduct of meetings. The book examines the law and practice of meetings of bodies generally, as well as the specific requirements of the Corporations Act applying to companies.


Originally written by Mervyn Horsley and based on his extensive experience as Secretary of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries for 20 years, the 7th edition has been revised and updated by A D Lang, Barrister, with a foreword by the Hon Justice Bromberg.

A D Lang is a Melbourne barrister practising in commercial and administrative law. He has particular interests in the law of not-for-profit organisations, election law and meeting procedure.
