Directors' Duties:
The Role of the Board

3 hours

As part of our course we will explore the role of the board, looking at the legal and regulatory framework that sets out the duties and liabilities for a director appointed to a UK incorporated legal entity.  

We will focus on the distinction between the board and management and the importance that governance plays in supporting a director to discharge those duties.  

Following our course you will be able to confidently understand what governance processes and procedures you need in place within your organisation to support your role on the board.  

Topics to be covered:
