Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Well for one, it is a compulsory course. But what's more important is that it gives an understanding into the legal framework for the accountancy and finance framework. Important issues such as company constitution, shareholding interests, etc, will be relevant in future for accountancy related fields.
Highlights of the course includes learning about the constitutions and how one could go about seizing control of the company. Another interesting highlight would include learning about the requirements for public disclosures with regards to shareholding interests. For example, public disclosure is required for increase in shareholding interests above a certain percentage. Knowledge of this can actually enable savy investors to follow the shareholding activities of important people (insiders or successful investors).

Advice for students:
Readup on the required readings before every seminar. This is a must or the lesson will be too fast paced. Also, instead of learning about theory, be ready to apply the theory to facts. What makes Company Law interesting is if you can try to apply theory and use it to engage your professors in discussions about whether there is a loophole in the legal structure.
