Suitable for commercial practitioners and litigators alike, this in-person course is aimed at those who are familiar with a B2B contract but want to check the impact of the latest case law on your drafting or analysis of a cause of action.

The course will cover recent cases and connects them to changes that should be made to your drafting and contract management.

It includes boilerplates, remedies and termination and is suitable for those seeking to avoid disputes as well as those who litigate them and enter into settlement agreements.

Essential learning if you have not been updated recently.
