Develop your drafting and negotiating skills with the Certificate in Commercial Contracts.

Applications for the Certificate in Commercial Contracts are still being accepted. This course provides an understanding of the fundamental competencies required when drafting, reviewing and negotiating commercial agreements.

Experienced practitioners provide drafting tips and best practice recommendations on how to ensure that your commercial contracts provide legal and commercial certainty. The course begins with drafting advice, examining standard boilerplate provisions, before considering issues pertinent to specific practice areas in more depth, such as consumer law, data protection and technology and e-commerce.
