Course UK contract law – changed circumstances and other topical issues

We live in a world of increasing uncertainty, both economic and political.  This is a particular problem for parties who are contracting on a long term basis with companies from different parts of the world.  In this context it is important to have a clear grasp of the legal rules applicable to the changing circumstances which can affect contracts.  This course will focus on English law (not UK law) but will also take account of the UNIDROIT Principles and the Vienna Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

Questions answered include – the impact of Brexit on contracts, the drafting of force majeure clauses, the drafting of hardship clauses, and the relationship between such clauses and the applicable law.

English law does apply to many contracts which have an international dimension and so it is important to have an understanding of the principles applied by the English courts in this context.  English law also has an impact on the approach to the drafting of force majeure and hardship clauses.  The course will also give brief consideration to the impact of choice of law on the interpretation of clauses such as force majeure and hardship.

  • the legal rules applicable to the changing circumstances which can affect contracts
  • UNIDROIT Principles
  • the Vienna Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods
