Hello and welcome everyone to my new class, where I will teach you how to draft clear commercial contracts.
My name is Michael and I am a Legal English teacher who has been teaching for 15 years. I have taught at Google, Cisco, Goldman Sachs, Baker McKenzie and Ashurst among many other organisations.
Thanks to my work with countless lawyers and law students around the world, I have the tools to encourage you to become a better contract draughtsman and a better negotiator.
This class is aimed at people who wish to become better at understanding contracts and how they are put together.
This course will also be of value to students of Legal English and Business English who would like to improve their vocabulary and comprehension of the language.
Nothing can replace the value of working with me one-to-one, but I hope that this series of classes goes some way to helping you to engage more fully with the language of contract law and negotiation.
Our main focus is to learn how to practically draft commercial contracts in plain English. Your course will be divided as follows:
In our first part we will learn about the language of contract law.
Our second series of lessons we will explore how contracts are formed.
The third section will look at key contract clauses and their purpose.
In the fourth set of classes, learn how about negotiating skills and phrases.
In part five, look at some key contract clauses and how to word them correctly.
Who this course is for:
- Law students
- Legal English students
- TOLES students
