Contract Law for Paralegals

Increase your understanding of contract law and considerations above and beyond your basic contract knowledge. The basic concepts of contract law are familiar to paralegals. This topic will increase your understanding of the contract law considerations well beyond those learned in a few months from your formal training. The topics discussed in the material will give you a greater view of the actual communications involved between parties and attorneys during the negotiations and discussions of contracts, with the practical application of understanding how those communications result in the formation of a valid contract. The topics, including performance and breach, have much greater nuances than presented in basic contract law courses. From this content, your communication skills showing greater knowledge of contract law will greatly enhance your standing with clients and attorneys by demonstrating your ability to understand and apply these more nuanced topics. You will also be given skills to further grasp the considerations related to proper remedies for breach, to recognize valid defense, all of which will provide further skill to your drafting of artful pleadings and discovery documents. The knowledge that you will gain from this material will close the gap between your ability to sound like you know something about contract law, and actually having comprehensive knowledge of contract law.
