Nature and extent of this responsibility and liability of directorsby Fiverr Tutors
“It can be argued that the district trend over may years has been the development, in statute and in case before the courts, of law and decisions which impose an increasingly heavy burden on directors in the performance of their duties and obligations to the company. As a result directors who fail to observe these duties and obligations will be exposed to significant liabilities and penalties.’
Reflect on the above statement and then discuss the nature and extent of this responsibility and liability of directors to the company. Your discussion should include an analysis of the nature, application and effectiveness of the range of duties of directors under the Corporations Act. In addition, you may also give some considerations to the relevant duties of directors at common law, by way of background and critical comparison. you should extend your discussion well beyond a mere description of the principles.
You should use section numbers and case authorities to support your arguments, and if possible illustrate with examples of contemporary cases before the courts. You should use a range of secondary authorities (books and articles).
