This virtual classroom seminar will consider a series of topical issues which those drafting contracts need to be aware of. A series of cases will be discussed with the emphasis on practical steps to take to avoid repeating the mistakes that others have made.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • Contract formation - using ‘subject to contract’ correctly
  • Battle of the forms - first shot v last shot - how to ensure you win the battle
  • Endeavours clauses - what is the meaning of the phrase ‘all reasonable endeavours’ and when should it be used?
  • Good faith clauses - how will the courts interpret these clauses and how should they be drafted?
  • Exclusion and limitation clauses - drafting to comply with the reasonableness requirement and to avoid ambiguity
  • Entire agreement clauses - non-reliance wording made simple
  • Variation clauses - will an oral variation ever be valid?

Recording of live sessions: Soon after the Learn Live session has taken place you will be able to go back and access the recording - should you wish to revisit the material discussed.
