This course will not eliminate the need for a lawyer to review your business contracts, but it will give you a more solid foundation in the jargon and principles involved.
From the course description:
What is a contract? How can you make one binding? How can you avoid being prematurely bound by one? What can you do to get out of a contract? What remedies are available if someone breaches your contract? What special rules apply to international contracts? These questions and the other important issues of legally enforceable promises are covered in the eight lectures of this course.
Contractual agreements are one of the principal mechanisms for ordering life in society. Whether a contract is written or oral, or even implicit, it carries with it all of the duties and obligations that society has endowed with the force of law.
This series of eight lectures lays a comprehensive foundation in the practical and intricate body of law that governs contracts.
