Professor McKendrick will be speaking on the topic of ‘Covid, Contracts and Change of Circumstances’. His lecture will examine the role played by the doctrine of frustration in cases arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic and consider, in the light of comparative law, whether English contract law should be changed in order to enable it to meet the needs of commercial parties dealing with a significant change of circumstances, such as the pandemic.

Ewan McKendrick, BCL, MA, LLB (Edinburgh), QC (Hon) is Emeritus Professor of English Private Law at the University of Oxford and Professor of Anglo-American Law at the University of Leiden.
