March 23, 2017 – This seminar is a uniquely rigorous overview of the building blocks of contract language and common sources of confusion. It’s based on Ken Adams’s book A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting. The focus is not on what you say in a contract, but how to say clearly and concisely whatever it is you want to say. It’s suitable for all levels of seniority, as much of what Ken has to say comes as news to even senior contracts professionals.
Gain practical guidance from real-life examples drawn from actual contracts in this interactive, hands-on workshop. Ken demonstrates the flaws in standard usages and recommends clearer, more concise alternatives. Rather than simply lecturing, he encourages participation through questions, discussion, and drafting exercises.
