Essential Contract Law Update With Professor Peel

March 18, 2021

Zoom Call

4pm-6pm (GMT) | 12pm-2pm (ET) | 11am-1pm (CT) | 9am-11am (PT)

Join McGuireWoods and Professor Ed Peel for an Essential Contract Law Update. Professor Peel, of the University of Oxford and One Essex Court, is widely regarded as the leading authority in this area. He will cover important developments in English contract law over the past 12-18 months, discuss current issues and trends, and provide attendees with practical solutions.

Following Professor Peel’s presentation, there will be a practical Q&A session hosted by McGuireWoods partners William Boddy and Simon Hems, with McGuireWoods lawyers from multiple practice areas discussing key takeaways and taking questions about the likely impact of those developments.

The programme, which will be held virtually, is designed for anyone involved in drafting and negotiating contracts, managing disputes relating to contracts, or otherwise dealing with contracts governed by English law, and will be of particular interest to in-house counsel.

The session will provide two hours of CPD, and CLE applications can be made as applicable. Detailed notes will be provided to attendees after the programme as a useful takeaway.
