Master Class: What’s a Prime Clause?

As David describes in the first class, the Prime Clause is a contract’s central promise and transaction. Think of: the promise of cloud services; the license to on-premise software; the promise of professional services. Plenty of contracts have a combination. And let’s not forget the promise to … pay. Join us on January 10 to learn more.

On January 12, students consider commercial clauses (such as technical specifications, SLAs, business continuity and disaster recovery, non-disclosure) and data clauses (including location, security, incidents, privacy, audits).
