There are lots of reasons you might not be getting the contract training you need. Do any of these sound familiar?
. . . I have too much on my plate already.
. . . It's always too vague and high-level to be useful.
. . . It covers niche concepts, not what I do every day.
. . . It's too expensive and I have to pay for my own training.
. . . It's soo boring.
. . . Training times don't work with my work and family schedule.
We get it. That's why we designed a contract training membership for busy lawyers and in-house contract teams that breaks through all those "why nots" to get you to "I can actually do this."
Sign up for contract training that doesn't break your budget and provides easy-to-understand, practical, no-fluff guidance on what you do every day.
