This course builds upon the success of the course on basic drafting concepts presented earlier this year and includes the following topics: a recap of basic concepts (including the categories of contract language); conditional language; language of exception and subordination; the concept of "deemed"; references to time; ambiguities associated with and, or, and and/or; drafting formulas; attachments to contracts; and legal archaisms. Designed to convey fundamental-but often unconsidered-principles, this course will assist both newly admitted and seasoned attorneys with drafting, analyzing, and interpreting contracts. Unlike many other contract-drafting courses, the program will focus on the manner in which concepts are expressed in a contract, rather than the substance of any provision or contract in particular.
Special Offer: If you attend or attended Fundamental Concepts in Drafting Contracts on February 11, save $50 off this program.
Who should attend? All practitioners wishing to further develop legal drafting skills. Attendance to the basic course is not a pre-requisite.
