Intensive Contract Drafting

Clearly drafted contracts facilitate the transaction. They are easier to understand and negotiate, less likely to have mistakes, and less open to competing interpretations.

In this full-day intensive contract drafting workshop, participants learn (1) general contract structuring and content (2) a reasoning technique to map out contract provisions (and entire contracts) that achieve the intended result; (3) tips for drafting clear, concise provisions (cut, simplify, lists, conditions/exceptions, consistent usage, etc.); and (4) common usage errors and litigated terms.

Throughout the workshop, participants review and edit contract excerpts from practice.
