Corporate law is already an important area of law which is growing at an incredible pace in India. The focUS of the Central Government to bring in companies to play a key role in economic development of the country is reflected from various schemes undertaken such as the ‘Make in India’, ‘Skill Indig” etc. All these initiatives have increased the need of dynamic and skilled professionals who can cater the needs of these companies to smoothly establish themselves and contribute to the overall development of the economy. The recent Companies Act, 2013 had been enacted to further cary on this initiative of the Government and incorporate the recent trends in the corporate law. It has great prospects of development in the national, international level in collaboration with the government promoting various aspects in relation to the functioning of a company. There has been recent developments in the field of corporate law which paved the way for amendments and it is very important to focus on the impact and implementation of the same. Special attention should be developed for the North East region of India as it has great potential of development in relation to the corporate sector.

Act 2002, Limited Liability Partnership Act 2008, Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016 and Chatered Accountants Act 1949, Indian Company Secretaries Act, 1980 along with various amendments and notifications. The Ministry of Corporate Affairs is mainly concerned with the regulation of various acts and rules in accordance with the law. With the advent of the concept of globalization, various other sectors came to be associated with the mainstream corporate law SUch as cross border business transactions, foreign direct investments, international securities market, international trade in goods and services, etc. Lot of research needs to be done in the larger aspect of corporate law rather than studying the same as a single area.
