Course Details

Advanced Contract Drafting for Entrepreneurs

This Donald Pritzker Entrepreneurship Law Center course will emphasize a realistic, hands - on approach to basic contract drafting, contract negotiations and transactional practice skills generally. It is designed to provide meaningful preparation and perspective to entrepreneurs, founders and other participants in the start - up and growth company community. Materials and teaching will be based on actual experience - a peek behind the curtain at what really happens when trying to get an agreement or deal done - and to equip students with useful, practical insight and a solid foundation of professional skills upon which to build. We will focus on the ins - and-outs surrounding real-world contracts and provisions rather than contract theory and purpose. Students will leave the course with a meaningful understanding of the key agreements and provisions they are most likely to encounter once they enter private practice or join a company, as well as the ability to negotiate these contracts and provisions in an efficient and "market-reasonable" manner. These skills should provide students with a leg up for successful participation in a transactional role.
