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

Careers Seminar

On the 29th November UEA will be hosting an 'Academic Careers Seminar' for Postgraduate Research law students.

With uncertainty as to job prospects the aim of the day is to enhance employability by raising awareness and transparency of the application process for academic positions and what those positions involve.

For example, those wishing to pursue a research career will benefit from the talk about the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and what the requirements are for researchers.

There will be a number of talks from UEA law lecturers to help make the day a success.
