Worthington & Associates Ltd. offers legal education books and seminar teaching licenses to help professional purchasers, materials managers, supply managers, and contract administrators reduce their legal risk and expand their legal knowledge. Our principal, Robert C. Worthington, LLB, spent his thirty year procurement career teaching the laws of purchasing, contracting, and competitive bidding. Users can immediately apply the fundamental principles learned from Robert's products to their everyday business. We think you'll agree, our products and services are worth their weight in gold!

While Robert has retired from teaching in-house seminars, qualified teachers can still license his one and two-day in-house law courses to allow you to train all your staff to help avoid legal jeopardy. Each course is custom-designed to give you the most up-to-date law in an easy to understand way. They're fast, efficient, affordable, and - believe it or not - they're FUN! In 2018, Bob may offer online seminars from time to time. Please visit our Calendar page for details. We want to help you and your organization rise to the legal challenges inherent in purchasing, contracting, and competitive bidding. Contact us today!

A dynamic speaker, an excellent presenter, and a true asset to every organization he has assisted, Robert will custom-design Keynote addresses for any corporate event. Robert doesn't speak in legalese - he gives his audiences straight talk and straight answers - and he always adds a little humour to his presentations, just to keep things light. When you're planning your next corporate event, we hope you'll treat your members and guests to a lively, entertaining presentation by Robert Worthington. We know they'll want to see him again!


No time for seminars? Ask about Robert's four books! There are three on purchasing and contract law, The Purchasing Law Handbook, The Public Purchasing Law Handbook and The Desktop Guide to Procurement Law. Must-have desktop references, these indispensable guides are written and designed especially for Canadian procurement professionals in the private and public sectors.

Negotiation: Principles, Tips and Tactics for Successful Deal-Making - this brand new, must-read publication is written in plain language for procurement professionals (it's a great guide for your legal counsel as well). It will help everyone who reads it to become a better negotiator! While Negotiation was written just for you, the busy contract and materials manager, it's a great read for anyone working in the professional world!
