Titles in the Casebook on series provide readers with a comprehensive selection of case law extracts for their studies. Extracts have been chosen from a wide range of historical and contemporary cases to illustrate the reasoning processes of the courts and to show how legal principles are developed. This chapter first addressees the question of why a company might incorporate. It then discusses the types of company and considers some of the legal issues surrounding the incorporation of a company. In particular, the chapter examines the role of the registrar of companies in scrutinising the incorporation process, the legal status of those ‘promoting’ the company, and the legality of ‘pre-incorporation contracts’.
