Does anyone know whether there are any good sites covering recent case law? Am looking for post-2006 cases for the Companies Act 2006 with respect to the directors duties. Have done numerous google searches but not getting anything, and my books only cover CA 1985 :S

Thanks in advance

You not got Westlaw? Search the legislation and then find cases on it.

I do, however, I don't know anything about Company Law.
For all my case law I generally use Westlaw, guessing you dont have access to it via your university?

Also surely your book if upto date should cover AC 2006?

Thanks for your replies.
Never heard of Westlaw, will check it out. My uni may have it, but I do a finance degree with only 2 law modules so not 100% sure whether it has it. One of my books is up to date but it only discusses the 2006 legislation, with cases going up to around 2002. Apparantly there have been more recent cases though which I want to write about in my exam :)

You could try LexisNexis as well.

Ah that is fair enough I believe majority of universities have access to Westlaw, although depending how your uni works you might not access to it being that you are not on a law degree. Thus you might need to get access allowed...you can search for anything and everything via westlaw, it is upto date, and very comprehensive!

I'm not sure of the names of the cases, but I wanted cases discussing directors, so anything on appointment of directors (section 154, 157) or the directors duties, so section 170(4), and particularly statutory duties under the act so this includes sections 171, 172, 173, 174, 175, 176, 177. Are you able to a search for those, if not thanks anyway for looking :thumbsup:

Hey, don't know if it will be of any use to you but I have an assignment I did for Commercial Law:Organisations that was on directors duties within the Companies Act 2006. Exact question was :

"Explain how the ‘conflict of interest’ rules set out in the provisions on directors’ duties in the Companies Act 2006 apply to company directors and discuss the extent that the current rules are clear and appropriate. "

It's filled with journal references + some case law. If you want it, let me know.
