Ultra Vires*
The common law doctrine relating to the effect of corporate acts that exceed the powers or the stated purposes of a corporation. Traditionally, if a corporation acted beyond its stated purposes, the actions were unenforceable against the corporation. However, most modern statutes allow corporate purposes to be any lawful activity.
