Tech Contracts Master Class™: Expert Training to Help You Negotiate Contracts Better, Faster, and More Confidently

The Tech Contracts Master Class™ series covers essential clauses in technology contracts. The Master Classes suit lawyers, and businesspeople who draft and negotiate technology contracts, including contract managers, procurement officers, executives, and IT professionals. Taken together, these four courses – two hours each – will prepare you to negotiate contracts about software, cloud services, and artificial intelligence (AI) more efficiently and with more confidence. And they’ll help you avoid the many pitfalls surrounding IT agreements.

Presenter:  Our presenter is David W. Tollen, founder of Tech Contracts Academy® LLC, which provides in-house and public training on drafting and negotiating IT agreements. David is an attorney, instructor at U.C. Berkeley Law School, expert witness, and author of the American Bar Association’s bestseller (and recommended reading for the Master Classes), The Tech Contracts Handbook
