Abstract

This article examines the liability of non-executive directors for negligent omissions or failure to supervise. The approach followed in common law will be compared with that of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 and the question addressed will be whether the recent approach under legislation is reshaping the standards expected of non-executive directors. Moreover, following the report of the Law Commissions on directors' duties, a suggestion will be presented on the ways in which a possible statutory statement of duties can best accommodate the position of non-executive directors.
