Fully Accredited Program Drafting Key Commercial Contracts and Reviewing Crucial Terms and Conditions For Non-Lawyers

Contracts form the cornerstone of every successful commercial transaction. Yet, contract drafting is difficult for non-lawyers as it involves complex language, legal terms, and jargon that is often difficult to grasp. In addition, contract clauses often contain highly technical language specific to the legal industry, making it difficult for an average person to understand the conditions in a contract. Without the right legal background, a person signing off on a contract can leave organizations exposed to risks and setbacks.

Designed for non-legal professionals, this program will equip you with the full scope of contract fundamentals to prepare you to draft better contracts and review crucial contract clauses. You will learn how to improve your contract drafting skills, review and re-draft critical terms and conditions to benefit your position, and add important provisions that can protect yourself and your organization from contract disputes and terminations.  You will also learn how to improve your advanced negotiation skills and strengthen your knowledge of complex contractual terms including indemnities, warranties, and exclusion clauses.

Led by Beverley Honig, author of the award-winning book “Making Contracts Work” and Judge for the Essential Services Commission Appeals, this program will empower you to go toe-to-toe with the greats and deal with contractual situations with absolute ease.

What Can You Expect From This Live Program

Contracts form the foundation of every successful business relationship. One organization can lose countless thousands of dollars over a simple technicality if their contract is not phrased well enough. Effective contract management can build a powerful business relationship and pave the road to greater profitability over the long term, but only if it is managed correctly.

Led by Beverley Honig, an award-winning lawyer and author of “Making Contracts Work”, this program will show you an in-depth understanding of the contract preparation cycle and how to review the important elements in your contract. You will gain a thorough understanding of how to draft contracts with tighter provisions that will ensure greater protection for your stakeholders and modify clauses so that they are clear, consistent, and enforceable. This program will also explore adding critical clauses that will protect you and your organization in cases of breaches and mediation tactics when your contract is in dispute. Using a combination of theory with real-life practices, you will also gain advanced negotiation skills and strengthen your knowledge of complex contractual terms including indemnities, warranties, and exclusion clauses.

By the end of this course, you will be well prepared to draft effective and clear contracts that minimize your organization's risk in contractual disputes, as well as resolve disputes between your organization and its business partners.
