Substantive Law: 1.0
Contract Law - Dealing with COVID-19 Impact & Issues
This one hour CPD seminar is designed to help you identify and guide you through the essential issues to focus on and how to manage your clients and risks.
During this session a leading practitioner will focus on the major issues including:
- General contracts update: the latest from the Courts, and a refresher on the principles of contractual construction;
- Force Majeure clauses: does Covid-19 trigger them and if so, what are the consequences?
- The doctrine of frustration, and whether it applies (especially if there’s no force majeure clause)
- Contracts specifically impacted by Covid-19-related laws (eg. leases and mortgages)
