Part 1 of the “Drafting Clearer Contracts” Webcast Series Launched

Yesterday saw the first broadcast, in a “live” session, of part 1 of my new webcast series “Drafting Clearer Contracts.” The topic was the front and back of the contract.

Because I had prerecorded the webcast, the broadcast was a zero-stress affair. Consistent with the live format, I was on hand afterwards to reply in writing to questions submitted.

As regards turnout, West thought the numbers were very impressive for a first run. They’re now describing the series as “an instant hit.” Sounds good to me, but it’s less important that whether those participating found the webcast useful—I’d be pleased to receive feedback.

The first webcast is now available on demand here. The second webcast will run live at 1:00 p.m. EDT on June 17, after which it too will be available on demand; for mor information go here.

So if you want to sample my expertise beyond what’s on offer in my blog, you have three options: you could buy the book; you could attend one of my live seminars (and receive the book too); and you could watch my webcasts.

What do I think of the merits of those alternatives? If you have a choice between attending the live seminars or watching the webcasts, which is the better choice is entirely a function of how you learn and what you enjoy—seminars and webcasts are very different.

Another question is, why not just make do with the book? That’s an entirely reasonable approach. Again, it’s all a question of how you prefer to learn.
