dc.description.abstractWork-integrated learning (WIL) placements are generally contingent upon the host organisation, the student and/or the university entering a written contract, which creates legal rights and binds the parties to legal obligations. Contract is a mechanism used by universities to manage legal risks associated with WIL; however, it can also be a source of risk. A case study involving 13 Australian university lawyers represents the first systematic research of contract risks in relation to WIL programs. The contract risks described by university lawyers were found in contract terms involving intellectual property, employment, disciplinary action, insurance, indemnities and warranties about students, as well as the contract practices of academic disciplines delivering WIL programs. The research findings can be applied by universities to educate stakeholders about contract risks in WIL programs, and to assess and evaluate risk management frameworks.
