To discuss and resolve participants contractual questions
Contracts are critical for and interdependent with commercial relations in that they can enhance or destroy long held commercial relations invested in over time.
The course looks at what parties entering into a commercial transaction need to address and be aware of such as what is the effect of a pre contract document, do the parties have a binding or non binding contract. What specific clauses should be inserted for the context and nature of the transaction and how they are reflected in the contract documents.
The course recognises the commercial and legal problems that regularly arise during the life cycle of a contract. It covers the thorny issue of letters of intent, confidentiality, terms implied by law regardless of whether or not they are set out in the written terms.
Coming to the end of the life cycle of a contract the programme focuses on contract terms to pay specific attention to such as best and reasonable endeavours, time is of the essence, force majeure, termination and jurisdiction.
During the course participants will look at case studies, sample documents and receive checklists to assist them during and after the course as they apply the learnings in their everyday work.
