English Website “The Lawyer” Has My Article on Contract Drafting and Young Lawyers

You can now find on the English website “The Lawyer” my squib The problem with contract drafting and what young lawyers can do about it. It speaks for itself. (Free registration required.)

I’ve been vocal over the past couple of years in suggesting that the English legal profession has bollixed important aspects of contract interpretation. So far, that has elicited some sputtering objections during seminars, but nothing in writing, and certainly nothing that matches my own efforts. That’s not surprising, as I don’t see that there are any serious holes in my argument. But the lack of any sort of discussion confirms that the legal profession runs on conventional wisdom.
