WEBINAR -- Essentials of ART Contract Drafting
On March 18, 2015, at 2:00 EST, Lynn Bodi, Shannon Matteson, and Colleen Quinn, will be presenting a 90 minute webinar entitled, “The Essentials You Must Know Before ART Contract Drafting.” This presentation focuses on what steps should take place in ART arrangements before the parties get to the contract drafting stage. Using stories of mishaps - including contract negotiations that have imploded - these presenters will present a check list of “should be done” items before launching into drafting the agreement.
The price per registrant is $149. The webinar is open to both Fellows and non-fellows. Each registered participant will receive a recording of the webinar along with Power Point and bios of the presenters. If you are unable to attend, but are interested in learning more about the topic, please go ahead and register anyway. You will be sent the recording and documentation after the event as well.
