Why ContractsCon 2024

is the Best Training Event

in the World


Practical training for the work you do all the time

For every mega M&A transaction or financing, there are thousands of regular contracts that companies handle day-in and day-out. This training helps you learn how to do those BETTER with strategies based on best practices used by top lawyers with solid real-world in-house inexperience.

Have a ton of experience already? This event is perfect for lawyers and professionals with 10+ years of contract experience too. We've added a whole day of training built to teach advanced contract skills. Plus you can connect with your peers and help out the ones earlier on the training path. 

Build friendships and connections that last all year

If you went to ContractsCon 2023, you know what I'm talking about. This event is not sitting by yourself pretending to work while you play Candy Crush all day. This event is about connecting human-to-human, showing support and kindness as we come to learn and have fun together.

Have the most fun you've ever had at a contract training event - GUARANTEED!

You don't have to tolerate boring CLE. to learn about contracts. We created ContractsCon to provide a fun atmosphere that supports you learning the best way there is - with silly stories, laughter, and shared joy. Yes, it is possible. Come experience it for yourself. (Disclaimer - This guarantee is mere puffery. You are on notice not to detrimentally rely on that statement in your purchasing decision. There's actually no such guarantee.)

We'll have CLE across all of US and Canada 

We are going to pursue GO BIG strategy for CLE, pursuing credit for lawyers licensed in all 50 states and where required in Canada.  We're offering 7 hours of CLE sessions for virtual ticket holders and 13 hours for those attending in person.

Even more ways to meet and connect 

We are incorporating even more fun and friendship into ContractsCon 2024. Our event app is packed with activities, connections, social media, polls, and contests to engage you with the attendees, the hosts, the speakers, and sponsors (but not the potato).

We're going to be in Las Vegas, but not in a casino

We are so thrilled that the University of Nevada - Las Vegas William S. Boyd School of Law is hosting us on campus. We can connect without the bing bing bing sounds and calls to drop in one more $20. But if that's your thing, don't worry! We're just 2 miles from the Strip.

A virtual program rebuilt for the virtual audience

We are replacing the live broadcast of the in-person event from ContractsCon 2023 with a virtual-centered program delivered directly to the virtual audience. At-home viewers can ask questions to the speakers, connect with other attendees in the event app, and feel like we built it for you. Because we did!

You should attend ContractsCon 2024 if . . .

you want to invest in your career and yourself by improving your job skills

you want to support your team by investing in their skills and development
