To all those reading this I am David Gibbs; I am a Lecturer in Law at the University of East Anglia.

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

Student Feedback

A short presentation on student feedback that I produced can be found here. The key focus is on how to improve engagement with feedback and breaks this down in to four sub headings each of which have their own two sub-headings as identified in the table on slide 3. I drew on the word engagement as this seems to be the "buzz" word at the moment in the literature on student feedback and tried to elaborate on its meaning through this work. I draw on literature to emphasise the importance of each point to maximise student engagement with their feedback and is hopefully edifying for some.
