Welcome to the Derivatives Law Academy!

We are the world's first educational organization that focuses exclusively on derivatives contracts. We organize training courses around the world, both public and in-house. Our courses focus on the ISDA Master Agreement and related documentation, in particular the Credit Support Annex for collateral. Our European / energy derivatives courses also deal with the EFET and IETA Master Agreements. Depending on the course location, we also tend to address any local master agreements.

These courses will provide you with an in-depth understanding of these agreements, the relationship between legal and risk management issues and the practical aspects of negotiation.

Our courses are unique in the sense that they feature a negotiation session module that allows participants to immediately apply the things they learned.

Course participants typically work at financial institutions, energy and commodity companies, law firms or regulators, in various departments, such as Legal, Documentation Unit, Risk Management, Trading Desk, Collateral Management and Compliance. We usually work with small groups of up to 15 persons as this allows a more interactive environment.

All of our trainers have extensive experience in negotiating derivatives contracts with a large range of financial institutions, funds and corporates. They have helped setting up derivatives documentation units at banks and energy companies, managed large novation processes and developed standard contractual documentation and internal policies.

While most course providers only organize courses in English, we also offer them in Spanish and Dutch!
