    Abstract

    This paper describes continuing work in using information technology (IT) to help Business students learn about contract law. The approach adopted uses a model of the contracting process as being one of negotiation, where the decisions made by the parties involve the acceptance or rejection of certain risks. Normal discussion tutorials are therefore replaced by a role‐play exercise in which students learn by taking part in simulated negotiations, each interested party being represented by a team of students. IT is being introduced into the learning process, both to provide decision‐support for the student teams, and to improve the mechanics of the exercise.
