Abstract

This paper is an early attempt at examining the concept of directors' duties with the aim to identify, to list and to analyse the laws which are incoherent or may suffer from practical problems due to inadequacies, or conceptual problems to the law. Such positions may be determined through case law studies, by commentators, experts and practitioners on the subject. The findings are useful in order to provide a list of inconsistencies between the teachings of the subject with problems in practices, for example by identifying why the good virtues as stipulated in theory may not be practical. The results obtained will be analysed and employed for teaching and learning practices in the form of mock trials, client counselling, mock board meetings, or topics for assignments, presentations, quizzes & tests etc. A more practical approach to the teaching of the concept of directors' duties specifically and the company law subject generally may be developed accordingly.
