New Writing Gig

I’m pleased to report that starting early next year, I’ll be writing a bi-monthly column for the New York Law Journal, the daily legal newspaper. It will appear in “New York GC,” a new section aimed at in-house counsel. I’ll be posting the articles on my site.

Between my blog, my occasional articles, and the next edition of MSCD, I’m not wanting for writing opportunities. Nevertheless, I accepted the NYLJ’s invitation because I thought it would give me the opportunity to explore some topics related to the process of drafting.

I feel fortunate to be writing about contract drafting. In the case of many legal disciplines, those who want to write something new are forced to scavenge at the margins of a given topic. I don’t have that problem: even after having written on the contract drafting for a few years, I’m not lacking for topics. At some point I’ll find myself limited to revisiting subjects I’ve covered previously, but I’ll worry about that when the time comes.
