Apart from intensive lectures, we primarily utilize interactive exercises, encouraging participation and addressing practical considerations related to the drafting process. This seminar is valuable for both junior and senior legal professionals (as well as law students and corpers), with tips that apply to all contracts drafted in English, whatever the governing law.

The course will focus on the different contracts, and participants will be able to understand the commercial considerations that drive such contracts and will understand the role, importance and the manner of drafting specific clauses in these agreements such as conditions precedent, indemnification, share transfer restriction clauses and boilerplate clauses.
Participants also have the opportunity to bring in life case studies with the confidential information redacted in the document. The class can then go over the documents and create clauses or suggest existing clauses that could solve envisioned problems.
