    I'm new to Company law and I have an essay due new week and I'm just a little confused what my argument is, my points are and what the question is actually asking me. Here's the question:

    “Should there be a desire to improve the protection afforded to minority shareholders in private companies, the courts should accept the enforceability of shareholders’ agreements so long as they do not affect third parties or the general public.”
    Cheung, R Shareholders’ agreements - shareholders’ contractual freedom in company law (2012) Journal of Business Law, Issue 6, pages 504-530, at page 529.
    The reality is, in fact, contrary to the above view expressed by Cheung. It is clear that the courts are of the opinion that the protection given to shareholders under the 2006 Act is already sufficiently strong. The courts also take a conservative interpretation of a company’s articles of association and, as such, regard shareholders’ agreements as nothing more than an unnecessary distraction.
    In light of the above quotation, undertake a critical evaluation of this view.

    If anyone could help me understand it a little better that would be a big help!
