Successful Contracts: Merging Legal Design, Proactive Law, and Technology

13.Feb.2018 17.00-20.00

Alma Talent, Alvar Aallon katu 3, Helsinki Kuvaus

Current contracts are neither machine-readable nor easily human-readable. While some contracts may need to work as evidence in court, most do not. Instead, they need to work for the parties so they get the results they want to accomplish. What can we do to make contracts work better? Join us to explore how merging legal design and technology with Proactive Law can enable successful contracts: commercially and legally sound, while easier to prepare, work with and act upon.
