The Game of Contract Law™ Group Role Play


  • Realistic background description of a project.
  • An assignment to choose from a set of clause alternatives with different risk levels. The choice of clauses will affect profit. The higher risk, the higher contract value. Hence, each group will have their individual contract and contract value during the game.
  • Execute the project. During the execution, realistic events will occur, such as delivery-, quality- or payment problems, saving- or bonus events, affecting the originally anticipated profit.
  • When the project has been executed a winning team will be nominated. The team that has balanced risk and pricing optimally in relation to events will win.
  • The game will give a robust insight in how an agreement works in practice. How a contact is negotiated and the correlation between contractual writing and agreement execution.
