Civil (Contract and Commercial) Law

Contract negotiationThe law governing contracts and agreements – whether between individuals or businesses, has a huge impact on all our lives. On the first day of this two-day course we will examine the legal principles underlying such agreements – how to negotiate and draft a valid contract and how to evaluate a contract produced by someone else. On the second day we will turn our attention to company law, introducing in particular the law around corporate financing and insolvency.

To close, we will look at what happens when a company’s actions or inactions cause death – the much-contested law of corporate manslaughter. 

All of our online courses will consist of small seminar groups, with lots of opportunities for discussion and debate with peers as well as learning from our expert tutors. This will be a fully live and interactive event, with summary notes and a certificate of attendance issued upon completion of the course.

This style of learning is an excellent preparation for university, and should give participants a real taste of law as an undergraduate subject, enabling students to make a more informed choice about law as a future study or career option.

‘This course is absolutely amazing for anyone who wishes to study law but isn’t quite sure. I feel that I have gained enough knowledge that I know law is the right option for me. I came from not knowing anything about the law but this course has helped me understand the basics so I can decide on my options for the future.’

‘This civil law course provides an insight into the different sectors e.g. taught, contract and defamation. Furthermore it is interactive and extremely enjoyable and develops key skills you will need in the field of law, e.g. negotiation, debating and questioning defendants and claimants. Overall I would without question highly recommend this course.’

‘I recently attended the Civil Law course offered by Debate Chamber. It was excellent. The tutor was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the course was a fantastic opportunity to work with like-minded individuals. We covered a wide range of topics, such as the formation of a contract and defamation, and there was a number of opportunities to develop our legal skills, such as Advocacy work.’
