Today’s issue of the New York Law Journal contains my first bi-monthly “Contract Drafting” column. It’s in the inaugural issue of a new monthly section, “GC New York.” (Click here to go to a copy of the column on the “GC New York” website; in the future, you may need to register. You may find this version prints better.)
Entitled “Wiki, Anyone?,” this column explores whether wikis could be a useful tool for purposes of contract drafting. I conclude that because wikis share some of the shortcomings of the traditional contract-drafting process, they’d be of limited use. (Sorry to be a downer!) I suggest that document assembly might be a more promising approach.
