Kick start 2018 with a round-up of the significant contract law cases of 2017. The webinar will explain some important legal developments in the law of contract over the past 12 months, and will cover:
  • How courts interpret a contract containing potentially conflicting terms;
  • Factors that a court will take in to account, in awarding damages for breach of contract;
  • The test applied by the courts in determining whether goods delivered under a contract are not of satisfactory quality in terms of the Sale of Goods Act 1979;
  • Developments in the court's approach to contractual interpretation; and
  • The level of formality required for an oral contract to be binding.
Our speakers will highlight what you need to think about when getting in to and out of contracts.

This webinar will be particularly relevant to in-house lawyers and anyone with responsibility for entering into contracts on behalf of their organisation.
