RISD Careers | How to Write Awesome Contracts - Art of Business

RISD Careers continues its Art of Business series with a session on contracts with alum and New England-based attorney Greg Kanaan 02 FAV. Contracts are probably the least fun part of running a business, but they’re also the most important. In this presentation, you’ll get a crash course in everything you need to know about contract law, including why having written agreements is critical for every transaction, what makes a contract legally valid versus what makes it unenforceable, when it’s OK to stop performing on a contract, and what information needs to be contained in every contract you use. You’ll learn some valuable tricks of the trade that you can implement when writing your own contracts.

Kanaan focuses on intellectual property, business law and contract issues for artists, filmmakers and creative entrepreneurs. He regularly speaks at colleges, nonprofit arts organizations and professional associations about how the law affects artistic endeavors. He also writes for a variety of publications and is founder of the blog The [Legal] Artist®. Before earning his JD from Northeastern University School of Law, he worked as a documentary television producer for seven years. Kanaan is licensed to practice law in New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut. https://www.thelegalartist.com
