In this edition of KWM’s Contract Law Review we look at key cases and other changes that have shaped the development of contract law in Australia over the past 12 months.
There is a deep existing body of contract case law that has been developed over hundreds of years. Accordingly, it is perhaps unrealistic to expect major shifts or changes in approach each year. However, while the cases we cover in this edition of the Contract Law Review may not be considered groundbreaking, they are still of great use to practitioners seeking to understand how existing concepts may be adapted and applied to different fact scenarios. Most usefully, staying across recent case law helps practitioners to stay alert and avoid common pitfalls that have trapped those that have come before them.
Watch KWM partner and authour of the review, Michael Swinson, discuss the key findings from the review:
