Our spring Tech Contracts Master Class series began on April 18, and will run through May 16 (with a one week break the week of May 1). Registration for the entire series is still open, and the recording for the first class (Prime Clauses) is available now through May 19. The Tech Contracts Master Class series is four online classes, two hours each. Join us and get better prepared to negotiate contracts about software, cloud services, and professional services.
Scheduling conflict? Access to recordings is available to registrants (upon request, for a set 30 day period).
Taken together, these four online Tech Contracts Master Classes will prepare you to negotiate contracts about software, cloud services, and professional services more confidently and efficiently, and help you avoid common pitfalls.
Taught by industry expert David Tollen, the Master Classes include live Q&A (based on students’ written questions during the program); the slides; certificates of attendance; and a 35% discount code for the The Tech Contracts Handbook (when purchased direct from ABA Publishing).
We hope you will join us.
