In addition to publicly available trainings like our Master Classes and webinars, Tech Contracts Academy also offers in-house training, which is customizable and exclusive for you and your team. And, our in-house offerings now address AI contracts.
Our in-house programs are designed for teams, of 3-35 people. Thorough and customizable, options range from an hour and a half to several days. Your team can learn from – and discuss questions with – industry expert David Tollen, author of the ABA’s best-seller, The Tech Contracts Handbook: Cloud Computing Agreements, Software Licenses, and Other IT Contracts for Lawyers and Businesspeople.
Program examples (see here for more details): Tech Contracts Master Classes; Artificial Intelligence Contracts (key clauses separating AI contracts from other software agreements, particularly generative AI); the Indeminar; Tech Contracts Select; Tech Contracts Customized.
Generally delivered via video conference, let us know if you’d prefer in-person.
Key Topics Include:
The job of the contract drafter; indemnities; warranties; limitation of liability; service level agreements (SLAs); data management and security; software licenses; SAAS and other cloud services subscriptions; statements of work; software ownership transfers; schedules and milestones; delivery, acceptance, and rejection; disaster recovery; feedback rights; technology escrow; amendment: unilateral and otherwise; choice of law and jurisdiction; technical specifications; IP and commercial law; open source software; non-compete and non-solicitation.

In this one hour webinar, we will address some of the most negotiated – and misunderstood – terms in contracts about software, the cloud, and AI. This program will cover common liability terms, and those contract drafters tend to understand least – including new issues related to generative AI.
In this one hour webinar, we’ll address what lawyers, contract managers, and other legal professionals need to know about the technology changes brought by AI. We’ll look at current and near-future AI solutions. And we’ll do something unusual: Assess AI by looking into the past – into the history of technology. We’ll try to assess what our jobs will look like in 5 and 10 years … and beyond.
