Directors’ Duties, Conflicts & Liabilities in One Day

The course covers a private company director's duties (both statutory and non-statutory), how to deal with conflicts of different types and the liabilities that such directors may be subject to.
Please note that directors and other non-lawyers new to company law should consider attending Company Law - The Nuts & Bolts.
