Minimising Legal Risks in Electronic Contracting
McNamara, Judith & O'Shea, Kathryn L. (2007) Minimising Legal Risks in Electronic Contracting. In Collector (Collaborative Electronic Commerce Technology and Research) Conference, 9-11 December 2007, Melbourne.
The use of information and communication technology (ICT) in electronic contracting has associated legal risks that must be addressed by contracting parties. The purpose of this paper is to identify the legal risks that may arise from the use of ICT in the electronic formation, administration and retention of contracts and to make recommendations to minimise these risks. The paper will conclude that collaboration platforms have the potential to minimise many of the risks associated with electronic contracting, provided they are used in conjunction with appropriate contractual provisions addressing the legal issues that arise
