This course includes all the knowledge that you need when working with different sort of contracts. In my case, have helped me a lot especially with regards to the terminology. It is very helpful being immersed in different legal cases, cross-referenced to each of the topics. Yasmine will provide you with a full explanation of the most important legal matters concerning this particular field. You will develop the skills to ensure that you avoid contract pitfalls and do not enter into contracts without realising the significance of every little detail. Videos and PDF information included. The platform is also reliable, I have never experienced any problem when login, well presented and avant-garde system.
