Exemptions Clauses and Unfair Terms

 
"So, you think you know about: Exemptions Clauses and Unfair Terms"

If you work in commercial law and draft contracts and consumer notices, you will recall that the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 limits the extent to which you can exclude or limit liability. Do you understand how the Consumer Rights Act 2015 now regulates these notices and clauses in contracts between businesses and consumers?

If you are responsible for drafting commercial contracts or advising clients in relation to contractual disputes, this course will introduce you to the key clauses and commercial considerations required for drafting.

Mistake

 
"So, you think you know about: Mistakes"

If you work in commercial law and litigation, you will know that sometimes disputes arise over contracts where the parties have different understandings of what they have agreed to. Sometimes both parties have made the same mistake, for example where the subject matter of the contract no longer exists; in other disputes only one party has made a mistake.

This CPD will give you a clear summary of when mistake can be used as a contractual remedy and when it cannot.
