Question:

Answer EITHER Question A OR Question B:

Question A

Olufsen LED are a medium sized United Kingdom based company manufacturing light-emitting diodes for scientific equipment such as microscopes.

The machinery that Olfusen LED uses to manufacture the light-emitting diodes was provided on contract with the company Newmatic. The contract contained a term that in the event of the machines failing Newmatic would fix or replace them within one week of being notified of the failure.

Last September the light-emitting diode manufacturing machinery failed and Olufsen immediately contacted Newmatic to inform them of the fault. Newmatic made several errors in processing the fault notification and they did not fix Olufsen’s machines until four months later in January.

In the interim Olufsen LED had been using older machines which were much less efficient – only allowing Olufsen LED to produce half of the light emitting diodes they could have produced using the Newmatic machines.

Due to the reduced production capacity Olufsen also lose out on a contract to supply light-emitting diodes to another company, Gotech, which would have earned them £50,000.

Write a report advising Olufsen LED if the can successfully claim contractual damages for loss of profits suffered by Newmatics failure. Can they also claim against Newmatic for the profits lost from the Gotech contract?

The report should also explain any alternative dispute resolution methods that Olufsen may wish to consider in their dispute with Newmatic and the relative merits of these methods.

How to submit:

Written Coursework:

Ensure that you consult your individual module guides for details on individual assessments.

Presentation

The assignment itself should be in Arial font size 11 and in double line spacing.

Your name must not appear on your assignment.  All assessed coursework is blind marked using your student registration number on your ID card.  Your student registration number and module name should appear on every page of your essay and each page should be numbered.  This is best achieved by use of the header and footer tool.  You are also required to put your student registration number and module title in the file name of your assignment when submitting on Canvas (e.g. Criminal Law 14043489.doc).

Word Length

Your word count must appear at the end of your work.

Word limits will be strictly applied as you are being assessed on your ability to produce an answer within a proscribed format.  Do not exceed the word limit in relation to your answer.  Students who exceed the word count by one word will be capped at 40%.

The word count for coursework will include in-text citations but NOT the bibliography.

Students should note that in Microsoft Word, if the reference mark (footnote number) is inside the punctuation mark, then the punctuation gets counted as a new work.  If the reference mark is outside the punctuation mark, then it will not be counted.  E.g. He said 1. = 3 words; He said 1, = 3 words; He said. 1 = 2 words; He said, 1 = 2 words.
