Wait - What Does That Mean? What Some of Those “Boring” Contract Terms Mean in the Age of COVID-19

April 30, 1:00pm - 2:30pm EDT. Hosted at FieldTrips on Zoom

About this FieldTrip

Attendees will take a FieldTrip into the land of Contract Law where we’ll explore contract formation, policy, and usefulness. We will then review a sampling of “boring” contract terms that most Artists and Creatives overlook…and discuss why they may be important in a COVID-19 world.
