Full program description
Contract and Intellectual Property Management
Non-Legal freelancers are increasingly involved in the task of negotiating and signing contracts. A lack of training and acute awareness of every legal angle has consequent repercussions, including excessive legal costs, delays and unacceptable risks.
This workshop is designed to provide a detailed overview of a full contract cycle, from its inception, preparation, right through to its execution and finally completion. Participants will be quickly familiarized with contract law and its implications, followed by the skills to thoroughly understand and draw up effective commercial contracts.
The workshop will also provide a detailed overview of four primary forms of IP and their importance in your business Trade Mark, Copyright, Patent, and Registered Design.
