Commercial Law Training Courses

Commercial agreements and contracts provide the foundation for businesses to operate and are fundamental to the success of a business. Without carefully constructed agreements, disputes and litigation are more likely. Whether you are looking to improve your legal drafting skills or simply keep abreast of the latest developments in international business law and best-practice, IPI Academy offers a wide-range of commercial law courses for the in-house lawyer that are presented both as public and in-house training courses, in order to fulfil all your (and your department’s) training needs.
