Law Society Gazette Publishes My Conversation with Mark Anderson

The Law Society Gazette—a publication of the Law Society of England and Wales—has published my conversation with Mark Anderson, aka @IPDraughts. No, wait—Mark’s conversation with me. Whatever. It’s called Adams v Anderson on contract drafting; go here for a PDF and go here for the posh online version of the entire issue of the magazine (it’s on pages 20 and 21).

In it, Mark and I discuss differences in English and US approaches to contract drafting. Because we would have found it way too boring to do it entirely straight, we permitted ourselves some japery. It might fall dreadfully flat, but at least we entertained ourselves!

By the way, some of you might not be aware that I did all my secondary and college education in England. I suspect that had an effect on what sort of things amuse me.

Next up, Mark and I will be taking our double act to the variety show at Clacton Pier.
