My New Article: “The Illusion of Quality in Contract Drafting”

Today’s New York Law Journal contains my article The Illusion of Quality in Contract Drafting. My co-author is Tim Allen, chief executive officer of Business Integrity, developer of ContractExpress document-assembly software. (Koncision uses ContractExpress.) For a PDF reprint, go here. For the online version, go here, but it “requires premium access.”

My articles alternate between substance and polemic. I think you can figure out from the title that it was polemic’s turn this time around. This article was inspired by, of all things, an essay in a law review. Remember law reviews?
