Online CPD Module

Presentation time: 90 minutes

As a result of their experience and acumen, lawyers are often seen as natural candidates for appointment as a director or trustee. However, although these roles are good professional opportunities they may also pose risks. It is vital that lawyers acting in or anticipating appointment to a position as a director or trustee are clear about the merits and challenges of the roles.

This module will provide practical advice aimed at helping ensure that you are aware of the factors to consider before accepting a position, and steps that you can take to mitigate some of the challenges and risks in fulfilling these duties.

Topics covered will include:

As a director:

  • Director’s duties and compliance
  • Lawyer’s role as a director
  • Issues where a director is the company’s lawyer
  • Directors and Officers (D&O) insurance cover
  • Legal professional privilege
  • Corporate lawyers and directorships.

As a trustee:

  • Duties of trustees
  • Legal compliance
  • Corporate trustees
  • Practical issues facing lawyers as trustees.

Please contact us if you use a dial up internet connection.

Learning objectives

After completing this module you will have an enhanced understanding of:

  • The duties of directors and trustees.
  • Ways in which the responsibilities of directors and trustees differ from those of a lawyer.
