The Role of Independent Directors in Corporate Governance, 2d ed.


Author, American Bar Association

Updated and expanded, this second edition will provide directors—and attorneys advising directors—with information on the policies and underlying issues that shape director fiduciary duties and the other corporate governance requirements. It describes the legal and economic context in which these governance requirements arise, and also outlines the implementation details that can affect specific governance related decisions. It also includes sample summary materials in the form of PowerPoint presentations to use as starting points to prepare training or explanatory sessions before a board or management.
