    What You Need To Know About Contracts

    Thursday 21st March 2019, 11.00am to 12.00pm AEDT

    This webcast will look at the key elements of contracts which we use in commerce and everyday life. Whenever we spend money there is usually a written or verbal contract involved.

    Matthews Folbigg lawyer and webcast presenter, Phillip Brophy, will consider the formation of a contract, who can enter into a contract if there is a company involved and how they can be varied and terminated. Phillip will also look at legislation designed to protect consumers and small businesses against unfair contracts.
