|Description||In the Czech legal scholarship, the prevailing opinion is that the duty of care implies a duty to obey the law. However, its boundaries have not yet been explored. Is it an absolute duty, i.e. does a board member owe a duty to the corporation to comply with the law at all times and in all circumstances? Or, rather, is it consistent with a duty of care to evaluate the potential benefits to the corporation of a violation of the law and, if it is beneficial to the corporation, to violate the law?|
