Drafting Clearer Contracts Ken Adams’s “Drafting Clearer Contracts” seminar is a uniquely rigorous overview of issues relating to contract language and layout and is based on his book A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting. (For information about the book, go here.)
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 lawyers. It’s structured to encourage discussion, with participants analyzing examples and doing short redrafting exercises. Go here for a sample agenda.
Ken gives a public version of this seminar throughout the U.S. and Canada and internationally.
