LEGAL DESIGN FOR CONTRACTS

COURSE OBJECTIVES

Better contracts mean better business
Fundamentally, contracts are tools: structured communications that aim to reconcile the parties’ expectations. A tool should speed up your business, not block it or slow it down – but in the real world, not all contracts work so well. Contract design makes you rethink the contract from the actual user’s perspective: for example, a client who has to sign the contract, or salespeople who will be negotiating it. The result: contracts that are easy to navigate, read and understand. Contracts that drive your business forward faster.
This course is for you if you want to learn the basic principles of contract design in a practical and accessible way so that you can immediately apply these principles in your own legal context.
