Welcome to the Advanced Contracts Course!


In this course, you will gain an attorney’s view of how dangerous risks can be avoided with specific contract language that will minimize your company’s liability exposure. Learn about various case dispute situations and how the contract clauses respond to real-case examples plus best practice approaches to manage the circumstances. Participants will have the opportunity to collaborate with the instructors on sample construction project scenarios and determine potential consequences as a result of the contract definition and legal requirements.

All sessions are held from 3-5 p.m. Eastern (Noon-2 p.m. Pacific)
