Course Overview

This interactive in-house programme examines the contract after it has been signed, when it cannot be revised and has to be implemented as written. It focuses on giving your contracts team the necessary knowledge, tools and processes to be able to read and review contracts, which they were not involved in writing and therefore may be unclear as to what the intended interpretation was of each clause.

They will learn how to apply a logical, systematic and comprehensive approach to reading, managing and implementing a contract so that they are confident, and they fully appreciate what them and the other contracting party(ies), to satisfy the legal obligations laid out in the contract.
