Contract Law Update 2019

·         “Excellent – as always! Superb materials.”

"...these seminars are invaluable."

​​Feedback from 2018

Contract law lies at the core of the work solicitors carry out on a day-to-day basis. Whether a solicitor is involved in the negotiation, drafting and formation of contracts, or advises in relation to remedies for breach, he or she needs to be aware of important recent developments. Edinburgh Law Seminar's Contract Law Update provides a comprehensive overview of all important developments in the law of contract over the last year.

The presenters, Professor Laura Macgregor and Denis Garrity, are experts in their field, combining academic depth with practical insight. This seminar covers:​

  • All major decisions in Scotland in 2018/19
  • Significant cases from England in 2018/19
  • Important statutory developments; and
  • Upcoming legal reforms to be aware of

Key issues covered include the law of formation, interpretation, implication, and the interaction of different remedies for breach of contract. Developments are placed in context, so that trends or new directions in the law can be understood. All delegates receive a substantial set of materials providing thorough notes on all cases and statutory developments – an indispensable update to your contract law resources.
