Moodle > Sound & Music Industry > 39.3 contracts

You will find three folders containing different contracts for the same purpose. Some have explanatory notes.

The lone item ‘informal recording contract’ does not seem to have been drafted by a legal professional and contains a number of flaws that you might choose to comment on for question 5.

NB      Distinction grade questions are optional, but you should have a go anyway!
