Event description
UWA Law School Online CPD Series: Force Majeure Clauses and the Doctrine of Frustration - Dr Sagi Peari

About this Event

COVID-19 led to a significant disruption of everyday commercial life. One of the outcomes of the pandemic relates to the inability of the party or parties to perform their contractual obligations. The seminar will tackle the various legal aspects of this inability. First, it tackles the question of nature, scope, validity of the force majeure clauses which aim to address the pandemic situation within the provisions of the contract. Second, it discusses the traditional common law frustration doctrine and its scope and relevancy in contemporary reality.

CPD Value: 1 CPD point in Competency Area 4: Substantive Law
