Welcome to CSM Legal

The Cumming School of Medicine (CSM) Legal team works to advise on, draft, review and negotiate contracts for medical research and clinical trials.

Our office supports researchers with a variety of research agreements, including (but not limited to):

  • Amendments
  • Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs)
  • Clinical Research Contracts (CRCs)/Clinical Trial Agreements (CTAs)
  • Non-Clinical Research Agreements
  • Research Grant Agreements 
  • Sub-Contracts/Sub-Grants
  • Data Transfer Agreements (DTAs)
  • Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs)
  • Service Agreements 
  • Master Agreements
  • Sub-Site Agreements

We can help - whether you need assistance with one of the above agreements, aren't sure which agreement you require, or have been provided a document from a research partner/sponsor that requires legal review and signature. 

Learn more about the Types of Agreements we do and do not handle. 

NEW

Submit Agreements for Review Through IRISS

As of April 2, 2024, the current SharePoint form has been retired and agreements are now submitted directly through IRISS. This new intake process will reduce the number of workspaces researchers need to access throughout the study cycle. 

Note: 

IRISS user accounts are being added to the CSM Legal module in bulk batches through this transition. 

If you require access to submit or create an agreement before your access has been granted, please email our developers using the link below and request your account be expedited.

All accepted agreement types are now submitted directly through IRISS, the University of Calgary's research management platform. The CSM Legal module integration allows researchers to submit, track, correspond, and manage documents related to their agreements all through IRISS.

All submissions currently in the SharePoint system will continue to be reviewed in the order of submission.

To learn more about this module, please visit how to Submit an Agreement in IRISS on our CSM Legal IRISS information page.

Forms and Other Document Types

For forms or document types that fall outside our list of accepted agreements, please continue to use our Forms PortalThis portal workflow will guide you through specific questions about your document so we can direct you to the appropriate team.

You can also check out our Resources page to get additional information on common forms and who to contact for additional support.
