In-Person Live | How to Draft a Contract


This "how-to" CLE program is relevant to all lawyers who draft contracts of any sort. This program begins with a discussion of the legal context of drafting, revealing outside forces that may dictate the way specific terms of the agreement are drafted or interpreted.

Attendees also spend time examining the meaning and implications of common performance and boilerplate provisions, including specific drafting techniques and strategies that contract drafters can implement immediately to draft legal documents with confidence.

Get ready to learn how to draft better indemnification provisions, allocate risk among the parties, mark up a prior draft to fit the current transaction, make seemingly minor edits to shift risk from one party to the other, use the right words to create the intended legal consequences, minimize risks associated with drafting in "the cloud" using web applications like Google Docs and iCloud, and much more!

INCLUDED SESSIONS

  • Context of Drafting
  • Gathering and Organizing Information
  • Drafting Techniques and Strategies and 7 Negotiable Elements of Indemnification
  • Handling Alternative Dispute Resolution, Gender and Amendments
