Design contracts are increasingly complex and the risk profile for design professionals is escalating. Design projects require a practical legal risk management mindset. Do you know your risks and how to manage them?
Redesigned for 2020. Choose to attend both program modules to gain a full suite of practical legal knowledge and risk management skills OR take one module to enhance your desired skillset.
