Why ContractsCon 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 experience.

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 of 2024, 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. 

 

Find out why everyone is raving about!

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 - If you prefer streaming 1970s detective shows on BritBox, you may not find it that entertaining. Although I could be wrong. Those shows are pretty ridiculous.)
