    I am creating a new space with CLS stud.

    I want to create an angle between two walls. I can cut the sole plate and the top plate so they but up to each other but I am not sure how I get the vertical studs to join or if I even need to join them.

    Could I just project the plaster board past the vertical studs and put a bead down the angle join?

    Whilst accurately cut angled ends are desirable, they aren't strictly necessary. Your studs still need to be plumb and should be tied-in (screwed or nailed) to both header and sole plate if only to allow you to fix the plsterboad to them. To find plumb you could always use a nut and a bit of string/thread.
