How will that contract you just drafted stand up to the scrutiny of a judge or jury? Each year, some of the largest jury verdicts in the United States are awarded in breach-of-contract cases. In this program, faculty will discuss lessons learned from trying contract cases to help you evaluate, prepare for, and win contract-related litigation. Topics will include unique issues that arise in trying contract claims; how commonly used contractual clauses can backfire at trial; minimizing risk in contract drafting and negotiation; restricting application of fiduciary duty and the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing; third-party vendor liability; and damages.
