This course provides an overview of the key principles of English contract law from formation through to termination and available remedies for breach. It draws out the similarities and distinctions with civil law regimes (particularly the UAE onshore Civil Code). It is essential learning for civil law trained lawyers who need to review or provide drafting comments on contracts governed by English law, DIFC law or ADGM law. It is also a helpful refresher for common law trained lawyers on the two legal systems compared, particularly for those who have recently started to practise in the UAE. This session is the companion course to UAE Civil Law Transactions Law in Context which is available in digital format.
