Kieran Hickie presents at CommBar CPD session on Courts, Contract and COVID-19
Young's List barrister Kieran Hickie presented at a CommBar CPD session on Courts, Contract and COVID-19, with His Honour Justice Riordan, Claire Harris QC and Scott Cromb.
The session focussed on how the different Courts are responding to the challenge and capitalising on the opportunity to bring about harmonisation and reforms, and the impact on contracts of the COVID-19 Omnibus Act and Regulations.
It also looked at the doctrine of frustration: the extent to which it may be triggered by COVID-19 and the consequences if it is, and Force Majeure clauses: the extent to which they may be triggered by COVID-19, and the potential consequences if they are.
