GNLU - Advanced Certificate Course on Principles of Law and Economics applied to Construction Contracts
GNLU Centre for Law and Economics is going to conduct the Advanced Certificate Course on Principles of Law and Economics applied to Construction Contracts.
Course Duration: 11th - 15th January, 2016
About The Course:
Corporations are increasingly involved in devising contracts and contract relationships that can enable the best possible cooperation between the parties. This requires an understanding of the economic role served by contract clauses. The course provides an introduction to the economic theory of contract and contract law, and illustrates the application of economic theory to remedies for breach of contract, change orders and conflict resolution schemes, and the allocation of risk of changed circumstances. A case study of the contract for the construction of a bridge between Denmark and Sweden illustrates how law and economics can inform contract drafting and contract management.
The course duration is for one week starting from 11th to 15th January, 2016. Arrangement for stay during the period will be provided at the GNLU Campus, Koba, Gandhinagar on the costs of participants.
The course is designed to give the recipients both a holistic view of Law & Economics as a discipline and all the same provide opportunities to explore specific areas that are affected by its application. Lectures will be conducted by the instructor entirely in English. This will be done through 13 hours of intensive sessions (per day 2 - 3 hours).
