The Contract Law course was put together after having received requests to put it together from a consortium of Maltese and foreign companies intending to set up a new venture. It started off as an in-house training programme that tried to bring up to speed people with an accounting, administrative, secretarial and managerial background with contract law and the elements they should take into account when they are actually going into contracts or when they are negotiating contracts.
The course was subsequently adapted to a wider audience and is targeted to non-lawyers with a professional interest in understanding the elements involved in entering into, constructing, negotiating and enforcing contracts within Malta, the European Union and beyond. This course constitutes a fundamental building block for those who often deal with contracts without having a holistic overview of the implications of going into the wrong contract. It constitutes essential learning for those who cannot or do not want to risk making a contractual blunder that can sometimes have overwhelming ramifications.
