The Essential Guide to Contract Law
Classroom: £329 +VAT per person
The financial and legal consequences of a poorly written or negotiated contract can be very damaging for any organisation and it is vital that those people who are involved in negotiating or awarding contracts fully understand what they should and should not include.
This course offers all those who have to manage contracts and deal with suppliers or customers an insight into the legal and enforceable status of contracts and contractual terms. It will explain how contracts are formed, what terms are covered in writing and by implication, how the contract-formation process should be managed and how terms can be effectively enforced. The course will explain how to establish contracts that support your commercial objectives. It will also help you to avoid making unnecessary commitments, falling into financial traps and improve your negotiating position.
The course is supported by comprehensive documentation and is illustrated throughout with practical examples and relevant case studies.
