May 19 Clauses in Contracts between Agencies and Freelancers

June 2 The Rules of procedure of the EU Judiciary
Language:English
Description
This is an updated version of my presentation in Barcelona in 2012. The course deals with the contractual clauses presented by agencies to freelancers which would be problematic to the freelancer. Examples of these are jurisdiction clauses, clauses on applicable law, and clauses on injunctive relief etc. The participants will have the opportunity to send clauses they have met themselves to me before the seminar and have them commented during the session.

This content was created by Jørgen A. Andersen.
Target audience
All freelancers. Representatives of agencies are also very welcome to participate.
Learning objectives
To make freelancers aware of the importance of contract clauses. To make them read the clauses and to make them think about what they read. Contract clauses are in the ordinary course of events binding law between the parties.
