My New Article “Common-Law Drafting in Civil-Law Jurisdiction”

My article Common-Law Drafting in Civil-Law Jurisdictions has been published by Business Law Today. Go here.

There’s not much of a back story. It’s a topic that has long been on my mind. I did it as an article instead of a blog post for the usual reason: I thought it would reach a more diverse group.

How did Jan Asmus Bischoff came to be my co-author? I asked for volunteers on social media, and he was one of a handful who responded. Showing up is 80% of life! It was a pleasure working with him.

Civil-law people, I’d be pleased to hear what you think of the article.
