Module 1: What is a Contract?

First it will be helpful to understand what exactly a contract is and how to write one. Any agreement between private parties creating mutual obligations enforceable by law is a contract. Learn the basic elements required for the agreement to be a legally enforceable contract. Drafting and negotiating clear and well-prepared contracts can provide clarity to discrepancies and help you prevent misunderstandings that can lead to lost time, money, and value


Module 2: Client Contract

A client agreement is a contract that you make with a customer. In it, you explain the terms and conditions under which you will provide your service to them. Writing client contracts and asking for a deposit is common across many industries, however often overlooked by performers. Learn how to draft a clear client contract and get a deposit.


Module 3: Independent Contractor

An independent contractor agreement is a document outlining the business relationship between you as the hiring company and an independent contractor. Learn how to draft clear expectations for anyone working for you.


Module 4: Non Competition Agreement

A Non Competition Agreement is a clause under which one party agrees not to enter into or start a similar profession or trade in competition against another party. Learn which state allow these types of contracts, when you can enter into one and what the terms and conditions are of such an agreement.


Module 5: Non Exclusive Agreement

A non-exclusive arrangement implies that both sides compromise on the supply of products or facilities, but may also negotiate the same products or facilities with other parties. Such agreements are made using Non-Exclusive agreement templates.


Module 6: Release of Liability

A release of liability occurs when a potential victim signs a release form or a contract containing a release clause. A release form is a waiver. By signing the waiver, the potential victim agrees that if an injury occurs, they assume the risks associated with the dangerous activity.


Module 7: General Waiver

A General Release is often used when one person is broadly giving up all known and unknown claims against another party. This document can cover broad claims that are filed in the most common scenarios.


Module 8: TFP Contract

TFP is an abbreviation within the photography and modelling industry that describes an agreement between the photographer and his subject and implies that there will be no monetary exchange for a photo shoot when a TFP contract is entered into.


Module 9: Tech Rider

A tech rider is a one-page document that gives the venue and/or soundman an understanding of what your technical requirements are and how to set up the stage before you arrive. It also gives them an opportunity to let you know if they can't accommodate any of your needs
