Find out what the future holds for online contracts in industry leading masterclass

How are courts enforcing click-wrap agreements?

The past few years have seen a boom in e-commerce and the two common methods of accepting terms and conditions of an online agreement – click-wrap and browse-wrap agreements – have become the norm.

But is clicking ‘I accept’ binding?

Find out at the Contract Law Masterclass in Sydney.

Tal Williams, Partner at Holman Webb Lawyers, will be exploring how the courts have applied the age-old principles of contract law to these new technologies. How are the courts treating online contracts?

Williams will discuss the risks involved in click-wrap, sign-in wrap and browse-wrap agreements; implications of the Uber case (Meyer v Kalanick & Uber Technologies) for Australia; and how to ensure that you’re bringing incorporated terms to the contracting party’s attention? (Surfstone Pty Ltd v Morgan Consulting Engineers Pty Ltd [2016]).
