This one-day seminar programme on Central Concepts in Agency Law aims to develop an advanced understanding of some of the key concepts in the law of agency, a subject of vital practical importance which is rich in ideas and detail. It affords participants an opportunity to benefit from the insight of Professor Peter Watts QC, the General Editor of the leading text on the law of agency, Bowstead & Reynolds on Agency, now in its 21st edition. Peter has designed and will run the seminar, and there will also be contributions from members of the Faculty of Laws at UCL with expertise in commercial law.
The programme starts with the concept of agency itself: its definition, functions in private law, and its variants and relationships to other concepts. It then moves to consider in turn the two central concepts in contracting through agents, “actual authority” and “apparent authority”. Lesser known ways to bind owners of businesses and property to transactions are then introduced. Selected other aspects of agency law are integrated into the programme and relevant recent case-law will be fully covered, both on the day and in material provided to participants.
