Home / News & Speeches / It is all in the drafting: ICC Institute’s Level 1 Training on International Contracts

Calling corporate counsel and legal practitioners involved in international trade! Our upcoming training on international contracts from 30 May to 2 June in Paris will provide you with the know-how needed to draft quality contracts to support cross-border transactions.

Supported by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Institute of World Business Law, the Level 1 Training on International Contracts will best equip professionals with the skills and resources necessary to produce well-balanced contracts.

After completing this three-and-a-half-day course, participants will be able to anticipate and address the key issues and conflicts that occur when entering into and managing international agreements. They will also gain a solid understanding of what dispute resolution options are available – and how to use those methods if a deal goes wrong. Finally, participants will develop powerful negotiation skills – while identifying and understanding cultural and legal differences – that can give an important competitive advantage in today’s global economy.

In today’s world, it is essential that contracts are successfully drafted from the start as they can make or break any business relationship.

“In today’s world, it is essential that contracts are successfully drafted from the start as they can make or break any business relationship. They should be clear, carefully drawn up and thoroughly reviewed to save not only time and money but preserve the working relationship of all parties involved,” said Jose Rosell, Chair of the training, international arbitrator, and member of the ICC Institute of World Business Law.

Using a mock case scenario, participants will be divided into small working groups to actively put to use what they have learned. In creating these real-life situations, participants can then confidently walk away with a strong arsenal of tools to craft concise and unambiguous contracts.

Additionally, there will be a variety of networking opportunities throughout the course’s duration. Both social and cultural, these occasions will ensure participants chances to develop ever-important contacts and connections.

“It is perfect for learning negotiations and offers a very good introduction to different types of dispute resolution,” said past participant, Maria Theresa Domingo of Cruz Marcelo & Tenefrancia in the Philippines.

I would recommend anyone from different field of work, private or public sectors, lawyers and non-lawyers, to attend such an insightful training.

Noor Serena Omar of the Ministry of Defense for the Government of Brunei in Darussalam said, “I would recommend anyone from different field of work, private or public sectors, lawyers and non-lawyers, to attend such an insightful training.”

Participants can earn up to 24 CLE credits, 21 MCLE credits and 21 CPD and CNB hours.
