Contracts: What the Non-Lawyer Should Know
This is a course in Contracts for the non-lawyer. Every day we see contracts and may have to read them, sign them and/or perform them. Many organizations are not large enough to have their own in-house counsel and calling outside counsel is expensive. Thus, more and more executives and their staff have the responsibility of understanding the day to day contracts with which they come in contact. The course will cover specific contracts related to the type of work many Wagner students may do, such as grant agreements, agreements with fundraisers (consultants), commercial co-venture agreements, and grants to foreign charities that involve contracts with foreign entities.
