Overview:

Every day-to-day transaction involves the usage of contracts — whether it be entering into a contract with a client, or buying something from a shop. We learnt in Module 1 of Contract Law Essentials the essentials of contract formation.

This course builds on Module 1 and will walk you through the discussion on performance excuses, specifically those of mistake and frustration, then we go on to study when contracts can be avoided due to the presence of coercion, undue influence, fraud, and misrepresentation at the time of formation of a contract.

The course provides access to all the sections that you need to refer to, exercises, examination pointers and full text of 50+ cases from SCC Online. Exercises enable you to test your understanding of concepts and also prepare for your law school examination. Examination pointers are notes that guide you on what kind of questions you may expect in your law school examination and where to focus your study. The course is also linked to chapters from Avtar Sing's Law of Contract through EBC Reader. This, upon subscription of EBC Reader, provides quick access to relevant chapters from the book.

 

WHY TAKE THIS COURSE?

This course is a comprehensive guide on privity of contracts and voidable contracts. It gives a detailed explanation of all the related concepts along with corresponding sections and cases for each topic. However, it is not limited to this, the course also has certain special features like examination pointers, access to full case text, and access to a discussion forum.

It is a one-stop-shop for every law student and professional to learn everything there is to learn about voidable contracts.
