CANCELLED: January Salon: Contract Boilerplate with Stacey Davis

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Do your eyes glaze over upon seeing the words “arbitration”, “indemnification” or “severability”? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone. But there is nothing boilerplate about boilerplate. These provisions are just as important (and affect your legal rights as much) as the other provisions in the agreement. Listen in as we break down these provisions in layman’s terms. Bonus: Take home cheat sheet for all attendees.

Keep in mind, outside food or drink is not allowed in the cinema. You’re welcome to purchase concessions from our concession stand and take them anywhere you want inside our cinema space, but if you’d like anything besides that we recommend arriving early and visiting one of our neighbors upstairs if you’d like something else. Salon is the first Tuesday of each month and is always free! We’ll start out in the lounge/bar area of the cinema at 6 PM and move back to the classroom at 7 PM for the educational portion.
