This popular masterclass returns with expert Andrew Beck examining the most significant developments in contract law over the past two years.

- Misrepresentation, the Contractual Remedies Act 1979 and the Court of Appeal’s approach in Bushline Trustees Ltd v ANZ Bank New Zealand Limited;
- Cancellation in the context of a property development in that went into receivership (Kawarau Village Ltd v Ho. 19);
- Contractual interpretation and the appropriate test for implying terms (The Malthouse Ltd v Rangitira Ltd); and
- The development of the law relating to penalty clauses, the applicable principles and a discussion of the case in 127 Hobson St v Honey Bees Childcare Ltd.
- The doctrine of unconscionability.
