This course, intended for lawyers and non-lawyers alike, starts by explaining in laypersons terminology the importance of structuring, negotiating and drafting international contracts and loan agreements. It then takes a set of contracts – from bilateral, multilateral and commercial transactions – and explains their structure and key clauses. Special emphasis is placed on how teams of negotiators should negotiate and draft specific clauses of contracts and loan agreements. Best practice examples are also provided all along this course. The emphasis throughout is on the development of practical skills.
