Most international agreements are drafted in the English language irrespective of the nationality of contracting parties. Language errors in the text and unclear and inconcise phrasing causes confusion and can ultimately lead to a dispute if it goes unnoticed. Gain a comprehensive understanding of the common pitfalls, key areas of risk and up-to-date drafting techniques in English to ensure you protect your organisation against unnecessary risk.
This programme is a highly interactive skills based course offering in-depth and hands-on training on the understanding, and drafting of international commercial agreements in English. The entire programme is built around practical learning in small groups under the guidance of the expert presenter. Pre-course testing ensures a compatible level of English in the groups. The programme delivered will be adjusted according to the prevailing requirements of the delegates involved.
