About this Course

Every day-to-day transaction involves the usage of contracts — whether it be entering into a contract with a client, or buying something from a shop. We have learnt in the Module 1 of contract essentials course what are the essentials of contract formation and how can these contracts be enforced. We saw that one of the most important requirements of a valid contract is free consent.

This course will walk you through the concept of privity of contract and the circumstances when the contracts can be avoided — Coercion, undue influence, fraud, and misrepresentation.
