A seminar on the new Revision 6 of the MF/1 Conditions.
Why you should attend
The seminar is designed for all users (engineers, sales managers) and will provide a clear and practical outline of the MF/1 Contract Conditions.
It will therefore provide a useful guide/refresher on the core provisions of MF/1.
Revision 6, four years after the publication of Revision 5, coincides with the centenary of the publication of contract conditions by the IEE (IET).
The speaker is Tony Ventrella MA, LL.B, Barrister, a member of the IET/IMechE Drafting Panel since 1985 which created and revises MF/1.
In addition to the usual hard copy of the presentations, each delegate will receive a copy of the new MF/1 Revision 6 (normal cost £70).
- Help delegates understand the principles, structure and core provisions of the Model Form
- To explain the commercial and legal reasons behind key provisions
- Key legal cases will be considered and explained.
The course will provide a clear and practical explanation of the application of MF/1 by lawyers who specialise in these conditions with plenty of opportunity for asking questions.
