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

Newcastle PGR Conference

This week (3rd and 4th) I shall be attending and presenting at Newcastle University Law School for their annual PGR Conference on 'The challenges for legal thought in contemporary society'. I will be presenting what is a development from my PhD on fiduciary duties of directors to identify the scope of the duty. This will detail when the director is required to be loyal to the company's interests by identifying the purpose and function of imposing loyalty on a director. The conference programme can be found here.
