This webinar will clarify the meaning, purpose and effect of the standard clauses typically included in contracts, especially commercial contracts.

It is intended to give practitioners a refresher on terms that are very commonly used but not always fully understood, such as: whole agreement; non-variation; relaxation and indulgences; severability; breach; governing law; force majeure; hardship; limitation of liability; confidentiality and restraint of trade; and so on.
