Overview

This newly launched CIArb E-Module enables those who do not have a legal background to understand how contracts are formed and the way in which different legal terms can be interpreted and applied in both dispute prevention and resolution.

Contracts exist in all areas of life and they are, by their very nature, designed to minimise misunderstandings between parties. However, sometimes disputes do arise, and in these situations it’s important that all parties understand the legal nature of a contract, its terms and what they can do to manage the dispute. This e-module provides an excellent introduction to contract law.

Description

The e-module has a number of different chapters on the formation of a contract, contractual terms and dispute resolution. Its learning outcomes include:

  • Identifying the ways in which contracts can generally arise;
  • Distinguishing contracts from other types of agreements;
  • The implications of a legally binding contract and implied and express terms;
  • The different tools and methods for interpreting contractual terms;
  • The means by which contractual terms can be used to prevent and resolve disputes;
  • The strategies for the effective prevention and resolution of disputes;
  • The implications of going to court for breach of contract versus ADR methods.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
