Training Course Overview

Contracts give rise to a range of liabilities by parties assuming rights, responsibilities, duties and obligations, but which can be managed through contractual mechanisms. They are equally risk management tools which can provide for payment of the consequences of injury or damage to an organisation’s assets - its people and property - and of third parties. This COPEX training course focuses on principal contractual liabilities, and how risk can be managed through the use of indemnities.
