Welcome!

To all those reading this I am David Gibbs; I am a Lecturer in Company and Commercial Law at the University of Hertfordshire.

I created this blog as a general out-let of ideas for my research, as well as keeping those interested up-to-date on my research and general interests.

I completed my PhD thesis at the University of East Anglia in 2014. The thesis was recommended for the award of PhD with no corrections. My external examiner was Prof. Simon Deakin (Cambridge) and internal examiner was Prof. Morten Hviid.
My PhD research centred on directors' duties and company law. The thesis was titled 'Non-Executive Self-Interest: Fiduciary Duties and Corporate Governance'. It was a doctrinal and empirical study on whether self-interest was suitably controlled amongst non-executive directors.

My supervisors were Prof. Mathias Siems, Prof. Duncan Sheehan, Dr. Sara Connolly and Dr. Rob Heywood

Research Presented at Norwich Symposium

Over the summer I have presented my research at a symposium in Norwich.

The event was aimed at demonstrating what research was going on at the University to members of the public and employers.

The day was a great success although having to stand up and talk for 10 hours was physically demanding. Members of the public had some very interesting views and it was very beneficial to hear some peoples' subjective views on matters regarding my research.

The event was covered by the EDP.
