Contract law in Corona times

Contract law in Corona times
© Münsterland e.V.

In her lecture, Sonja Laaser will explain the current legal situation for (cultural) events and answer questions such as:

  • What do I do if an event is cancelled and what are the recommendations for action?
  • How are terms such as "force majeure" or "impossibility of performance" defined?
  • Is there a claim to a cancellation fee in the event of a cancellation?

Both the side of the artists and the organisers will be examined. During the lecture and afterwards there will be the opportunity to ask questions about the topic.

Wednesday, 3 March 2021 | 4 - 6 pm

Online via Zoom conference. The event is fully booked.
