Examine a contract in reverse order, beginning with breach

This course takes a “backward” look at negotiating a deal: it examines the damages and indemnities that come into play after a breach of contract, and offers document crafting guidance to ultimately avoid a breach.

Learn why a contract fails and gain a competitive advantage

You negotiate the deal, draft the agreement, and execute the contract. A dispute arises, and new counsel is hired to litigate or otherwise resolve the dispute. But you, the transactional lawyer, never know what went wrong and, ultimately, how the discrepancy is settled. That information is a valuable tool to helping you improve your negotiation and drafting strategies. This course exposes some of the most common triggers that cause a contract to fail.

“Refresh” your memory and understanding of core legal principles

You learned the basics of business law back in law school. Many years and many clients later, a quick reminder of those “nuts and bolts” principles would still be a help, even to you, the seasoned practitioner. Designed to reinforce the foundation on which you have built your practice, this program will “refresh” your memory and understanding of the fundamentals that you learned when you were a student in law school.

  • Overview of Damages Under Pennsylvania Law
