Coming Soon: New Series of “Drafting Clearer Contracts” Webcasts!

OPDI did my first series of “Drafting Clearer Contracts” webcasts way back in 2009. At long last, with the help of my partner in Canada, Osgoode Professional Development, I’ve created a new series.

It consists of five segments, each a little over an hour long (well, the fifth segment is around 1.5 hours). Each segment will be launched with a “live” broadcast, including a Q&A session with yours truly. (Yes, we’re doing it live!) The live broadcast of the first segment will be at noon Eastern time on Wednesday, 3 February, with the other segments being rolled out the same time on the four following Wednesdays. The series will also be available on demand. For more information, go this page of OPD’s website.

This series is of way higher quality than the first series. I recorded it at OPD’s facilities, so the audio is great, and you have the uncertain bonus of getting to see my leering mug occasionally. I also added “call-outs”—arrows, circles, underlining, and the like—to the PowerPoint presentation. It took a lot of time and attention to put it together; I was reminded why it had taken me so long to do a new series.

I like to think that people around the world will find this series useful. Like A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting and my live seminars, the webcasts are geared to the needs of anyone drafting contracts in English, wherever they might be based. (Continuing-legal-education credits are available only for Ontario lawyers.)
