Mistake in contract webinar 2023


A contract is said to require a meeting of the minds of the parties, yet it frequently happens that a party signs a contract under some misapprehension, or without a proper knowledge of its terms. This presentation considers what effect this might have on the validity of the contract, and explains why the problem of mistake in contract admits of a fairly simple solution.

Join us for this two-hour webinar in which we will explore this topic.
