Introduction
In this report I’ll provide research and detailed answers to all the queries you’ve for me. Law is a system of rules that are enforced through social institutions to govern behavior. (Robertson, 2002). I’ll use reliable references, case law examples and legislation to support my work and provide you with legitimate research. I’ll be talking about the three events that’ve occurred at the Grove Theatre in Salford. In Contract Law I’ll be talking about the variance between an offer and invitation to treat, and the variance between condition and warranty. In Tort Law I’ll be talking about vicarious liability and seeing if this applies to Wicked Theatres Group Ltd. Finally in Employment Law I’ll be talking about employee status and
