    Sure. Reading Law helps all Malaysian law students, especially UiTM law students 😉

    There is one catch though: Either commit to this blog as a regular contributor or promote this blog in campus and find us more writers.

    i’m a 1st year law student in MU..over here, there is no such thing such as model answers or spot questions or handouts which obviously make it rather challenging for us to study n answering law question..honestly, i never saw a single model answer since i left uitm year ago..

    therefore, i would be so glad if u guys can come out with a standard law question of any subject ie. contract, tort etc. as well as the complete IRAC answer for our reference..even a single model answer will do..

    i know that the law question is dynamic n will never be similar..however, i juz seek to see how IRAC is employed technically..it would be such a big help for us, law students 🙂

    I need your guide on how to answer this question below. I help on the layout of the answer. Is entreprenurship here refer to the shareholders and company owner.


    Do you think that the Director’s duties set out in the company law in your country hinder entrepreneurship? Give reason for your opinion.




    • Raymond Chu says:

      Collectively, there is a lot of procedures and red-tapes imposed under local statutory laws and above all, a company’s portfolio is much reduced to a puppet subject to the influence of competitive pricing and etc. Income tax provisions are highly on the list and depending on the shares subscribed and operative capital, both direct and indirect, the list of subversive elements are endless and quite profound, just like beling on the road. There will always be hooligans, maniacs and the dare to die bunch to kamikaze the prospect of a better future or e-future of your ‘beholdings’.

      Yes, it is not only a thought but come to think of this, a reality undefined since the laws here can be quite unpredicatable and amendable when the favourites turn to be not so favourable anymore.

    Well you would need to approach the question by first examining the scope and nature of the directors duties in question and their correlation to the bottom line of entrepreneurship that is, to make profit. What is meant by profit however is totally yours to define. Depending on your morality or ethical views, etc, you may or may not come to the conclusion that directors duties are a burden in terms of its effect on profit margins of businesses and that company directors would do better without them. Its up to you how you wish to argue. Hope this helps.
