Legal Academy Takes Yorkshire Businesses back to the Classroom

Yorkshire businesses are being given the chance to increase their knowledge of commercial contracts by attending an innovative series of interactive seminars about commercial contracts

Yorkshire businesses are being given the chance to increase their knowledge of commercial contracts by attending an innovative series of interactive seminars about commercial contracts.

The Clarion Academy has been set up to support business owners and managers involved in negotiating contracts on a daily basis and help them to gain a broader understanding of the most frequently-used contract law affecting businesses.  The first session took place last week and was attended by ten of the region's leading businesses.

The six sessions feature a range of contract-related issues focussing on commercial contracts, intellectual property (IP); employment and litigation.  Topics include checking small print; protecting your IP; contract management; TUPE; drafting schedules and contract disputes.

In order to graduate from the Academy, firms must attend four of the six sessions. The cost is £25 per session or £100 for all six with all fees being donated to St Gemma's Hospice in Leeds.

Clarion commercial partner Matthew Hattersley said: "The Clarion Academy provides practical guidance on key issues often faced by managers who may not have a legal background, but who are regularly negotiating and managing commercial contracts.

"It is a great training tool which will give our ‘students' a rounder understanding of business and contract law, helping them to manage risk and save their businesses' time and money."

The Academy is being held at Club LS1 in Albion Place, Leeds, from 9am -10.30am with registration and breakfast from 8.30am. The next session will be held on Wednesday July 7 and following sessions will take place on 15 September; 20 October; 17 November and 8 December.
