Course Overview

Business activities are the backbone of economic and social activities. However, to ensure protection of one’s rights and finances, contracts are an absolute necessity to enforce rights and recover monies. In the course of doing business, a deal can be made or broken if there is a delay in drawing up a contract. Delays may be due to misunderstandings or merely being uninformed or unaware. This course will demystify and give simple explanations to what a contract is, its elements and essentials, protect business interests, manage risks and liabilities, how to speed up the contract process so that work can be done effectively and efficiently, remedying breaches and options, and enforcing contracts.
