We are standing with the Australian not-for-profit sector by ramping up our support for community organisations affected by COVID-19. 

This FREE webinar will help your organisation understand key concepts of contract law, with a focus on COVID-19. We’ll give you tools to navigate common contractual issues – whether you’re cancelling an event, renegotiating with a funder, putting a project on hold, or changing how you purchase or deliver goods and services.

Join lawyers Juanita Pope and Amy Williams for a live 30 minute webinar followed by 15 minutes of questions and answers.

We'll cover:

  • The key elements of a contract
  • What it means if either party can’t deliver on what it promised to do
  • Options available if either party can no longer meet contractual promises

They’ll also refer you to new resources including our COVID-19 FAQs, a comprehensive response brief and other resources to help support you and your community organisation.

What you’ll receive 

  • 30-minutes of plain-language training from an expert lawyer
  • Copy of webinar recording and slide presentation (recording available for 30 days)
  • Information on further resources and support

Cost: Free
