The legal responsibilities of directors are changing significantly in 2024. Find out the latest on directors' duties and emerging areas of board liability in this engaging and interactive seminar by Dr Kath Hall. 

Legal Essentials

Run over two sessions:  Session One - 2.5 hours, Session Two - 90 minutes

This foundational workshop covers the legal liability of directors. Designed for emerging and new directors, and a great refresher for current directors, the workshop provides a case-based and highly informative introduction to the key obligations of directors and board members of commercial, NFP and incorporated organisations in Australia. 

Attendees will come away with:

  • up-to-date information on board roles and responsibilities,
  • practical information on directors' duties,
  • a check-list of possible "red flags" and risks, and
  • insights & knowledge from group discussions on a range of current case studies and scenarios.

Workshop inclusions:

  • Session 1: A 2.5 hour virtual webinar. Handout with a case study to review in your own time.
  • Session 2: A 90 minute follow up virtual webinar to work through the case study, raise additional questions and cement what you have learnt - (Wednesday 6 March 2024 from 12.00 noon - 1.30 pm AEDT)
