English Law is often chosen by organisations operating internationally as the preferred Law for their contracts, and yet many people feel uncomfortable as they possess insufficient depth of knowledge to really understand what's going on. Contracting & Procurement staff, sales people and their legal advisors all need a good knowledge of the law in order to have a solid base on which to negotiate binding contracts, resolve disputes and enforce terms. This 5-day course is designed for people such as these.

  • act as an 'intelligent customer' to legal advisors to help create a successful & coordinated inter-business relationship.

  • A background of Common/Case/Statute Law & terminology
  • Review the '7 Essentials' of a valid contract ' and what happens if one is missing?
