This CLE course will provide in-house counsel with insights on how best to manage contracts in a high volume, high velocity corporate environment. The panel will discuss how to manage the contract life cycle, including building a contract management program that can help in-house legal departments oversee each step of the process, while also ensuring the involvement of the relevant stakeholders in an organization.


In-house counsel is typically responsible for oversight of negotiating, drafting, modifying, and renewing a high volume of various contracts within an organization. Parties involved in the contracting process are often non-legal personnel, using language, forms, and inserts that may evolve over time.

GCs must work with sales, procurement, finance, and compliance departments to develop a contract management process that minimizes legal department involvement while protecting the organization. The best process gives an organization the power to create and monitor contracts faster, smarter, and at a far lower cost while preserving the integrity of company contracts. While contract management may be handled in-house, some law departments are using in-house and third-party vendor solutions to help make the process more efficient.

Listen as our panel discusses the benefits of a contract management program and key features to consider when designing and implementing one.



  1. Legal department's role in contract management
  2. Benefits of a contract management program
  3. Participants in the contract process: sales, procurement, finance, and compliance personnel
  4. Contract life cycle
  5. Building a contract management program
  6. Forms, checklists, and playbooks
  7. Monitoring amendments, extensions, terminations

The panel will review these and other key issues:

  • What factors should corporate legal departments consider when designing a process to make contract management more efficient?
  • How can in-house counsel efficiently move contracts through the contract's life cycle while also mitigating contractual risks for the company?
