Seeking Not-for-Profit to Take Part in Penn Law 2012 Contract-Drafting Project

I’ve re-upped at Penn Law: this fall, a scant twenty JD and LLM students will be taking my course in contract drafting.

Once again, I plan on closing out the semester with a drafting, or redrafting, project for a not-for-profit organization. The idea is that we’ll work on a contract, or part of a contract, for whichever organization is selected, then we’ll hold a meeting or conference call with personnel from that organization to discuss what we did and why, and what works and doesn’t work. For more details, see this post about last year’s project.

In previous years we’ve worked with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the World Wildlife Fund, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. I think these projects have proved worthwhile for all concerned.

So if you think that your not-for-profit organization might want to take part, please email me.
