The Contract and legal document drafting ONLINE seminar is an intensive training event for practising lawyers, paralegals, business people and linguists held over 2 half-day sessions. It will improve participants’ knowledge of Contract law and learn the necessary skills of writing clear, concise contracts.

The training is designed to improve the knowledge and understanding of the essential skills of drafting clear contracts and contract clauses, including guarantees, indemnities, warranties, representations and other contract terms, together with their use and effect.
The seminar includes basic legal concepts in contract law, its rights, remedies and enforceability.  This intensive seminar will be delivered by an experienced British lawyer/linguist used to the multicultural, international flavour of modern business.

The seminar will cover not only the practical knowledge needed by lawyers working in international commerce but will also simulate an international contract negotiation scenario, with simulated strategy meetings, and tactical argument development. There will be numerous exercises, for the participants to work through exercises based on the material in the presentations.
All of this requires constant input from the participants to ensure they gain a solid working ability to write clear, concise contracts which achieve their objectives.
