How is the course delivered?

The course includes four interactive learning units covering the many facets of Contract Law, as well as dispute avoidance and resolution.

After each interactive exercise, learners will be told what the correct answer is and why, so that they can deepen their knowledge and understanding of the subject area.

Upon completion of the course, candidates will receive a certificate.
