Examining key elements in contract law & contractual obligations to manage risk, audit contracts & improve dispute resolution methods.

This high impact one-day masterclass provides a practical foundation on the drafting, administration and enforcement of commercial contracts and contract law, focusing on key elements of contractual obligations to manage risk, audit contracts and improve dispute resolution methods.

In just one day, managers and directors,  in all sized organisations, will receive insights on the drafting, administration and enforcement of commercial contracts, and contract law.

Delegates will learn how to avoid the risk of drafting unenforceable contracts, lower the risk of unforeseen contractual obligations and learn how to ‘get tough’ when enforcing contracts.
Most importantly, delegates will learn how to draft, confirm and enforce contracts without always seeking a lawyer’s advice, and in less time – freeing up time for making better business decisions and saving money on hefty legal fees.
If you need a clear understanding of the foundations of contract law, the Contract Law Fundamentals Masterclass goes into the details of the formation of contracts, the rights & obligations of the parties to a contract, potential vitiating factors in contracts, how to enforce a contract and appropriate remedies in the event of a contractual breach.
