The How to Contract Conference offers the training I always wanted but could never find.

I am Laura Frederick, Founder of How to Contract. I spent my career as a commercial contracts lawyer looking for a practical training on the specific techniques and tactics used by experienced lawyers. 

The conferences I did find were too niche, too vague, or too academic. 

I curated the content and hand-selected the speakers from the best contract lawyers I know. 

Together we present eight hours of practical contract training on exactly how we draft and negotiate contracts in the real world.
