This Practical Guide will provide a brief, practical overview of some of the legal issues that are commonly encountered when drafting and negotiating university contracts. Some of these issues concern the basic framework of contract law, which underpins university contracts and makes them legally effective (or not).
How it works
The guide is divided into two main parts: Chapter 1 consists of a discussion of general legal issues that arise with many different types of contract;
Chapter 2 is a glossary of selected words that are encountered in commercial contracts or legal practice, and which have acquired a particular meaning (e.g., best endeavours, engross, execute, etc.).
