At some point, virtually every attorney--from seasoned commercial lawyers, to the novice, to lawyers who practice outside commercial law--is called upon to draft or review a contract or to litigate a contract dispute.
Because contract law is so widely practiced, many fall into the trap of thinking that if they can read it, they are sufficiently expert in it.
The competent practice of contract law requires a comprehensive understanding of relevant case and statutory law. "Drafting-by-form book" does the client a disservice, as does litigating "by the seat of your pants" without being conversant with critical concepts.
The "hot" topics in contract law that most attorneys never studied in school
- The ever evolving "battle of the forms"
- the new face of unconscionability
- "rolling" theory of contract law
You have to take this course to hear the rest!

|"Dr. Murray taught my first year contracts class. He was outstanding in the classroom and although that was many years ago he has retained his excellence in delivery. I must say he also looks much the same as well." (State College, PA)|
|"I like being able to print off the written materials and reviewing them before listening to the speaker. This allows me to know where the author is going as I listen to the presentation. This is why I like online courses better than live speakers." (Pittsburgh, PA)|
|"This was an excellent refresher course and update on important contract issues." (LEWISBURG, PA)|
|"None. The instructor was great." (Davie, FL)|
