Contracts Drafting | L4178
This course addresses the perspectives and skills that a lawyer must develop in order to assist clients with transactional work and aligning business objectives and contracts. In addition to delving deeper into selected areas of substantive contract law, students will read materials that focus on writing and interpreting contractual provisions. Because a core focus of the class is writing for contracts, students will regularly engage in drafting exercises to hone their drafting skills. The course will also focus on negotiation in a transactional setting, and how discussions with both clients and other parties can distill the key business terms that are to be reflected in a contract. Although substantive law and theory will be utilized throughout the course, the primary objective of the course is exposing students to some of the practical, "real-world" skills essential to a transactional law practice.
