The Doctrine of Ultra Vires: Commendable or Condemnable!

  •  Ali Khaled Qtaishat    


This study investigates principally the doctrine of Ultra Vires in the English law. It aims at crystalizing the ramifications of applying this act to the English Commercial Law throughout several eras, taking into account the impact of abiding by the Ultra Vires act on the parties involved in the concerned transactions; i.e. the concerned shareholders and creditors. Furthermore, the study attempts to decipher the puzzling matter which concludes whether the doctrine in question must be cherished or perished in the English legal system.
