We Are Always Learning About Contracts

Experienced contract lawyers and professionals understand that education never ends. Staying at the forefront of our field requires us to continually sharpen our skills.

After all, we operate in a living, breathing industry. Foundational training in contracts is essential, but it’s just that—a foundation. There’s always more to learn, no matter where your career takes you.

So I ask you this:

  • Lawyers and professionals, how do you ensure that you continue learning to maintain your hard earned edge?
  • Law firm partners, how do you make sure your team continues providing top-notch guidance to clients?
  • In-house counsel, how do you keep them engaged so you can continue to operate efficiently while protecting the company?

All are critical questions and all share an answer: How to Contract Network.


Your Solution for Ongoing Contract Training 

We all face challenges. For some us, it is learning the basics. For others, it is understanding the nuances.  For some, we need ongoing refreshers.

How to Contract Network is my answer to this recurring challenge. 

As a member, you have a single contract training hub to help you stay on top of what can be a very fluid industry.

There is no easier or more reliable way to empower yourself or your people.



How to Contract Network Members Enjoy Premium, Long-Term Benefits

I asked the hundreds of lawyers and professionals who signed up when the Network first launched what they value most about their membership. The answer was clear: the real-world insights and readymade contract resources that I and other pros use every single day to make our jobs easier (and clients happier).

My goal is to continue providing this type of support while also cultivating a community where others can meet and share their own knowledge directly with one another. Here’s what you can expect as a valued member of this community:

What Some of Our  330+ Members Are Saying...


There is a grassroots revolution beginning in legal education, with more and more experienced practitioners beginning to share—rather than jealously silo—the benefit of years on the job. Laura Frederick is at the forefront of this revolution, and the members of her How To Contract Network include the best and brightest voices in our LinkedIn contract nerds community.”

– Rebecca Gray, Founder, The Entrepreneur's Lawyer

"Laura speaks in plain terms from experience. Her tips are no-nonsense and address the common areas of dispute, all driven by the goal of getting an agreement that fits the client's priorities and risk tolerance. Lawyers who draft contracts and litigate them can gain valuable insight from the HTC community that help them understand the business context of contractual provisions as well as why a provision is important to achieving the client's business goals and managing risk in later litigation."

-- Amy Falcon, Law Firm Partner

"Laura does an amazing job at breaking down terms and provisions without using legalese. I would highly recommend How to Contract Network to anyone looking to challenge themselves, grow, develop and enhance your contract negotiation skills. The wealth of knowledge I have gained is absolutely priceless. I've always loved negotiating and How to Contract Network is helping strengthen my skills."

– Flo Nicolas, In-House Counsel

“I joined the How to Contract Network to expand my practical expertise.  I look forward each week to the newest checklist, guide, negotiation script, or other contract tools. The training on limits of liability was especially good. I would recommend it to lawyers looking for quality contract content."

- Marin Kotze, Law Firm Managing Director and Co-Founder of
