Essential Contract Law for Non-Legal Professionals [Webinar]

Date: 14-15 October 2021
Time : 14:00 - 17:00 


Contracts are essential features of the business world and daily commerce. While a good business contract helps to bring in profits, and even better one safeguards those hard-earned profits at the same time.


Through the use of contracts, businesses and individuals communicate their expectations with each other. If you hold a managerial or executive position responsible for dealing with contracts, this workshop will aid you in better understanding them and in better protecting your commercial interests.


Advanced Contract Law will focus our discussion on specific areas of contract law and deepen our understanding of key principles.

For example, we will study in-depth rules related to contractual interpretation and what the Parol Evidence and Contra Proferentem rules are.

We will also delve into specific but common contractual clauses such as Restraint of Trade, Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation, Confidentiality and Trade Secrets, Dispute Resolution, and Enforceability of Cross-Border Transactions.

Thereafter, our discussion will take us to the specific laws in Singapore that are related to contracts, such as the Sale of Goods Act, Civil Law Act, and Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act.


This 2-day course thus seeks to empower you with the knowledge of fundamental contract law principles which apply to your business contracts.
