The reduction to writing of an agreed-upon understanding among parties can sometimes be viewed as a cursory step in formalizing a business relationship. Yet the manner in which concepts are expressed on a page are often as important as the concepts themselves. Solid contract-drafting skills are therefore essential tools to any professional who deals with transactions or business relationships. Unfortunately, although contract counterparties might have the best intentions, many contractsâ€”even those drafted by experienced attorneys and those relating to the most prominent of transactionsâ€”are plagued with ambiguities, inconsistencies, unintended imprecision, and â€œbloatâ€ from unnecessary legalese, rendering them confusing, risky, and potentially very costly.
Fundamental Concepts in Drafting Contracts: What Most Attorneys Fail to Consider is designed to convey both basic and nuanced principles to assist attorneys with drafting, analyzing, and interpreting contracts. Unlike many other contract drafting courses, this course focuses on the manner in which concepts are expressed in a contract rather than the substance of any provision or contract in particular.
