On the module, you will examine the main elements of the law of contract in England and Wales. Contract law plays an important part of everyday life for individuals, businesses and even public agencies. It underpins many industries, including the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industries. Knowledge and understanding of contract law is imperative in a variety of practical dispute resolution and problem-solving contexts. The module therefore places substantial emphasis on applying the rules, principles and concepts of contract law to real-life, industry-focused cases with practical consequences, and on contextualising the law in relevant legal practice, social and economic settings.  

The module needs to be completed before progressing to the Exeter-based part of the HKUST-Exeter programme LLB in Engineering and Law.
