Each Concentrate revision guide is packed with essential information, key cases, revision tips, exam Q&As, and more. Concentrates show you what to expect in a law exam, what examiners are looking for, and how to achieve extra marks. This chapter focuses on company directors. Every private company must have at least one director, while every public company must have at least two. Directorsʼ duties are now found in the Companies Act 2006, which provides for seven general duties that directors owe to the company. A director’s term of office can terminate in several ways including resignation, retirement, or removal. The courts can also disqualify a person from acting as director.
