University of Wales v London College of Business Ltd

Contract – Breach. The claimant university claimed a sum of money in respect of payment due under the validation agreement, pursuant to four invoices rendered in 2012 to the defendant business school. By a letter dated 20 December 2012 the university purported to terminate the validation agreement on account of the defendant's LCB's failure to pay the moneys due under the invoices. LCB denied that the invoices were properly rendered under the validation agreement and asserted that the university's purported termination of the validation agreement was ineffective and was itself a breach of contract. There was also a counterclaim for suspension of the university of LBC's validation. The Queen's Bench Division held that the claimant was entitled to judgment in respect of the claim and the defendant was entitled to judgment on the counterclaim.
