Contract Law Fundamentals for Non-Lawyers

Build confidence around legal terminology & contractual obligations to help protect your commercial interests, assist in contract development & avoid disputes. This Contract Law Fundamentals for Non-Lawyers course will help you equip yourself to understand the legal advice you receive, interpret it correctly & generate true value for your business.

About the Course

First in our contract law training courses and our CMP Certification, this course is designed to address the foundations of contract law in the workplace.

Commercial arrangements sealed with signatures or handshakes are part of daily life for most professionals, across all industries and sectors. They remain good business practices because they’re built on enforceable principles of contract law. Yet with vaguely expressed contracts, unclear offers or acceptance, or even questions of consideration or undue influence, contractual disputes are still commonplace.

This course will explore such details as when you need a contract, what type of contract exists and the effect of statutory law on your contractual arrangements.

It covers the crucial ingredients required for a good contract, provides tips for understanding contractual material, and looks at the traps and pitfalls of contract drafting.

Under this contract law for non-lawyers course, the instructor will spend detailed time teaching participants how to interpret examples and scrutinise what happens when things go wrong.

Who Will Benefit

  • This practical fundamental course is relevant for ALL those who have dealings with contracts in their everyday business environment and is an excellent grounding for professionals new to dealing with contracts as part of their role – in any industry sector
  • This is for people with no or and very little understanding of contract law. It covers fundamentals, therefore, is designed to give people an introduction to contract law and how it fits into their daily contract management practice
  • People with many years of practical experience but no substantive knowledge of the law would find this course and our other commercial contract law courses very useful as it provides them with a framework in which to place their existing knowledge
  • People can also use this contract law course as a refresher if they have studied some law earlier in their career

Key Learning Objectives

  • Develop processes to ensure contract objectives are delivered while mitigating risk

  • Implement drafting changes that improve contract clarity and structure
