Co-op Fortnight Law Lecture 7.00pm 03.07.13 Holyoake House

This is the planned outline for my lecture on 3rd July:
"Ian will be outlining current legal issues around the co-operative and community benefit society structure. He will deal with recent developments in co-operative and community benefit society law and changes likely to be seen in the next 12 to 18 months. They include the proposed new Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act, the entry into force of the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies and Credit Unions Act 2010, the application of the administration procedure to insolvent societies, the new registration system for societies under the Financial Services Act 2012 and the new FCA guidance expected in late 2013 or early 2014. He will also examine some issues around share capital in societies."
