Regulating non-executive directors in Australia : a socio-legal approach
Young, Angus (2008) Regulating non-executive directors in Australia : a socio-legal approach. Company Law, 29(11), pp. 323-329.
Discusses the role of legislation and codes of conduct in influencing the behaviour of non-executive directors. Outlines the functions of a board of directors and considers the role on non-executive directors in particular. Traces the development of standards of skill required on non-executive directors both under the Australian Corporations Act 2001 and under common law. Questions whether these have brought about a real change in behaviour. Considers whether professionalisation of directorship could be more effective.
