Basic Contract Law: What You (Don't) Want To Know

In this interactive and informal group discussion, special guest Professor Pascale Chapdelaine will lead the session and go over the basic elements of a contract, what to look for and what to avoid. She will discuss specific contract clauses found in software licensing and development agreements, and provide feedback on real-life contract issues experienced by workshop participants. Participants are encouraged to think about contract-related questions or issues in advance of the workshop.

Pascale Chapdelaine is an Associate Professor at the University of Windsor, Faculty of Law. Her research looks at the interaction between intellectual property, property and contracts, as well as to how new technologies and automated business processes shape consumers' rights and expectations. Her book: Copyright User Rights, Contracts and the Erosion of Property (Oxford University Press, 2017) explores the rights users have to books, articles, software, music, film, and other works protected by copyright, in an ever-changing technological environment. Professor Chapdelaine teaches Contracts, Intellectual Property Law and Consumer Law.
