An individualized certificate is generated when you complete the course.

CLE: Tech Contracts Academy On-Demand programs are approved for Continuing Legal Education (“CLE”) credit in California, and we provide a CA CLE certificate (self-study). Jurisdictions elsewhere (and professions) differ on whether students may apply individually, and if so what’s required. See here for details about CLE.

Note: Several of the issues here are covered in our longer program, the Tech Contracts Master Class™ (made up of four sessions of 2+ hours). Also, much of Chapter 4 is also covered in our program The Indeminar: Indemnities in IT Contracts. (We consider occasional overlaps valuable, reinforcing key lessons.)
