The techniques considered in our “Advanced Contract Drafting Excellence and Effective Risk Management” course can be put to immediate use for both straightforward and complex international commercial contracts. The course will examine in detail the practical drafting techniques; legal principles; language and negotiating points to keep in mind when drafting a contract and managing risk. We will analyse recent cases in which the drafting went wrong and identify the practical issues arising from the decisions of the courts. We will also consider how the courts are approaching interpretation of contracts and assess the impact of these decisions on contract interpretation. The course will also consider the most negotiated and important clauses in international commercial agreements; identifying and analysing not only drafting issues but the relevant law in common law and civil law jurisdictions; including the UAE. We will also consider the topical subjects of smart contracts and blockchain and assess the impact that these developments will have on contract drafting; formation and operation. Join us at the training to develop your drafting skills; identify and manage contract risk; and discuss practical contract and commercial drafting issues with others.
