Contract Management: Business Law Certificate

About the Certificate

Businesses often rely on employees to draft contracts, turning to lawyers only for complicated circumstances or as a final check. Providing these employees with a thorough understanding of common legal implications with contracts is a critical training gap for many organizations.

Explore Canadian law as it applies to contracts. Review case studies and apply your knowledge to identify legal issues, determine the consequences, and draft clauses to mitigate risks and find business advantages.
