 One of the areas technical professionals can use tutorials is in legal
matters.  Al Sklover does this with his outstanding blog and advice
column and ECS Interface has been offering a Patent tutorial by
Maria Inman and Jennings Taylor.  

.
Sklover points out three pertinent items in contract law…
-  Importance of Section Titles- read carefully the title and section
content and confirm they express the same thing
-  Entire Agreement- Sometimes other and previous agreements may
apply.  It is important to seek out the precise wording and specific
wording.
-  Importance of SIGNING AGREEMENTS
.
Taylor and Inman nicely document 
-  First to file in patent law changes
-  Significant detail on “Prior Art” for patents 
-  Nature of Prior disclosures in collaborations influencing patent claims.
