SRA Competency B


It is a well-established rule at common law that there are circumstances when a court will be prepared to imply an additional term into a contract.

The rules on this were summarised by Lord Neuberger in the case of Marks and Spencer v Parabis and since then there have been a series of interesting cases that have applied these rules.

This lunchtime live broadcast will set out a summary of these recent developments.

  • Statutory sources of implied terms
