Contract Law for Paralegals

November 12

Learn the basics of contract law including sources, drafting, and explanation of special forms of contracts.

The commercial world today is global and the ability to enter into electronic contracts is an essential part of it. Paralegals involved with drafting and reviewing commercial contracts need to understand the different sources of contract law, including e-commerce and internet law, and be able to draft and review commercial contracts. This topic will help paralegals responsible in drafting and reviewing commercial contracts to navigate different types of contract laws and become familiar with the standard elements of a commercial contract, including the preamble, recitals, definitions, terms and termination, representations and warranties, indemnification, limitations on liability and miscellaneous and boilerplate provisions.
