We are exposed to contracts every day - whether it's agreeing to terms when downloading a new computer program, hiring a contractor to repair a leaking roof, or even ordering a meal at a restaurant.
 
Knowing and understanding the principles of contracts is an essential skill for lawyers and individuals alike. Join Harvard Law School Professor Charles Fried at the Harvard Ed Portal as part of the Faculty Speaker Series. Professor Fried will explain how contracts are formed; what makes a contract enforceable; and what happens when one party breaks a promise.

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP online through Eventbrite.

*This event is in conjunction with Charles Fried's online HarvardX course ContractsX: From Trust to Promise to Contract. While attendees do not need to be enrolled in the course, they may find the trailer to the course a perfect precursor to attending the lecture.
