Businesses run on commitments that are reduced to written contracts. In fact, the entire economy functions on the backbone of contracts. This entails contracting to bind the parties as regards their future conduct so that the promises are performed without any disputes. This requires contracting parties to come up with multifarious scenarios and agree upon a particular course of action, often in situations where both parties’ interests might diverge. The act of drafting necessitates mastering not merely the art of legal writing but also of understanding the nature of the transaction and the risks that might be involved in it.

This course explains each clause in a typical contract which will enable you draft, vet, or examine contracts to safeguard your or your client's interests. The course also provides you with relevant checklists to use while drafting and some sample agreements, for example, Gift deeds, Lease deeds, Licence agreements, Sale deeds, and Employment agreements.
