Company Law Reflection | Company Law


Reflective practice exercise 4(week10)
What were the two most challenging weeks in Company Law? Why were
these weeks challenging?
Two topics that were the most challenging to learning and understand in week 5
and week6. There are using ILAC for limitations on the Constitution. On week 5, I
was talking in Reflective practice exercise 2, I have been getting materials from
the teacher but I not really understand Holding, calling and convening directors’
meeting for section 248 A, 248C, and 248F. On the week 6, it is really challenging
to know it. It relied more on legislation, thus this topics to be more complicated.
Such as proper purpose and improper purpose, I always confused.
What steps can you take to address the challenges with these weeks in
preparation for the final exam?
I set a goal to get good mark for this course. Therefore, I take several steps to
preparation for the final exam. Firstly, I need to change my attitude towards
learning that information or learning materials must be provided by the
instructor and learn how to get the materials myself. Secondly, I have to do more
exercise for the case, it will be help me improve study techniques and
understand the principals applied.
