Advanced Contract Law Training Course for Non-Lawyers

Master your contract interpretation & preparation skills through this advanced contract law training program designed to extract, discuss, & interpret complex contract law issues & the real intent behind clauses, terms & conditions to generate true value for your business.

About the Course

Third in our contract law series and our CMP certification, this course is designed to demystify complex and confusing terms and conditions to take the headache and procrastination out of contract analysis. One of the biggest costs to business today is the time taken to understand the true meaning, intent, and associated implications and liabilities for individuals and organisations.

As the economy picks up, many more contracts are being written with a myriad of complex terms and conditions. These often extremely critical terms and conditions get glossed over and sometimes overlooked, resulting in $1000s in time wasted, project hold ups and legal fees to establish fault and compensation. Our advanced contract law course will take a step-by-step approach through some of the most complex contracts we are faced with in business.

The course will cover a wide spectrum of industry sectors, and will be adjusted and tailored to suit the participants’ needs on the day. The instructor will spend detailed time teaching participants how to interpret examples and take their interpretative and analysis skills back to their workplace.
