The eminent author of Contract Law in Australia and a new book Construction of Commercial Contracts will explain fundamental aspects of contractual interpretation and valuable analysis of recent developments in commercial contract law. Some of the questions Professor Carter will deal with are:

  • What are the main construction rules?
  • Are construction rules predictive?
  • What construction presumptions are used?
  • Is there more to construction than 'meaning'?
  • What is the impact of 'commercial construction'?
  • What is the role of context under Australian law?
