Constructing Meaning through Organisations and Law: An Analysis of the Due Diligence Defence for Prospectus Misstatements and Omissions Liability in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia

This thesis analyses how the meaning and content of due diligence defence in prospectus misstatements and omissions liability have been constructed in three jurisdictions: the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia. The conceptual model of Lauren B Edelman is adopted in this thesis emphasising the organisational and institutional influences in the law-making process. This enables new insights to be gained on the evolution of the DDD in common law countries. It also reveals the important role of organisations, rather than the judiciary or regulators, in constructing the meaning and content of securities laws across all three countries.
