Business Contracts Certificate
Contracts can make or break a business. Successfully preparing and interpreting a contract allows both parties to clearly define expectations under the protection of the law.
This certificate program explores the many different aspects of contracts. You will investigate the creation of enforceable agreements that clearly and precisely set forth the rights and obligations of parties in order to achieve business objectives with acceptable levels of risk. Throughout the courses, you’ll have the opportunity to spend time breaking down the different types of law, procedures, and elements that make up contracts, as well as investigate strategies to mitigate risk and minimize consequences in the event that a contract is breached. You will also demystify legal jargon relating to contract law in order to enhance collaboration between businesspeople and their counsel. By the end of this program, you will have gained a set of tools that will enable you to create and manage contracts in your business confidently and effectively, as well as be a more active and informed partner to your legal team.
