Module 5 – Negotiating IT ContractsPrevious Tech Law Essentials modules have looked at some of the key features of IT contracts, as well as the underlying legal concepts. However, life at the sharp end also involves negotiating contracts in this area. Successful negotiation is both a legal and a broader commercial skill. Unsuccessful negotiation risks problems arising for one or both parties in the future.

In this module, the speakers will examine a number of facets of negotiating an IT contract, including:

  • Preparing for negotiations
  • Contract review
  • Tactical considerations
  • The need for clarity

The aim of the SCL Tech Law Essentials Programme series is to provide a foundation for lawyers who are qualified practitioners (2- 5 years PQE) who have decided that they want to specialise as IT lawyers. SCL’s programme of twelve modules will cover all the key areas of practice in IT law. By taking this programme you can be confident that you will have the know-how and understanding to advise effectively across the whole range of IT law issues.
