Tips for Reading Contracts When You're Not a Lawyer

Get practical tips and tricks for reading and understanding contracts when it's in lawyer language. Many contracting professionals who attempt to read contracts meet a challenge - the contract has been written by lawyers, for lawyers and only lawyers seem to understand what the contracts say. This material helps the non-lawyer read the contract with an understanding of the core elements. This includes: • Identifying the risks and value lying in the contract and understand how to best address them • Understanding the motivations behind the author • Understanding why certain things are best left in the contract and why it is best to leave some things out • Anticipating how requests to change an item will be approached and the likely response • Understanding how simple punctuation can become a major issue • Realizing that tracking the requested changes is essential
