Learn the practical contract skills you need in the real world 

Our practical contract training helps in-house lawyers and professionals learn the skills to support their company and advance their careers.


We focus on practical real-world contract skills, the kind that in-house lawyers and professionals need to work with the contracts they handle all the time.

You CAN become a drafting and negotiating superstar. 


You just need the RIGHT training.

Imagine feeling confident when your manager or client send you a new contract.  You know you have the skills and expertise to ensure it says what it should and nothing it shouldn't. 

What if you felt that way ALL THE TIME instead of those bouts of fear and panic, worried you're going to royally screw something up?

How much easier would your job be if you could operate independently, without needing constant feedback on core contract concepts, and with your manager confident in your skills and expertise?

How to Contract will help you improve your skills and (just maybe) fall in love with contracts.
