Seminars in London, Paris, and Frankfurt

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be giving my seminar “Contract Drafting—Language and Layout” in London on April 17, in Paris on April 19, and in Frankfurt on April 26. For more information and to register online, go to this page of my website.

Why Paris and Frankfurt? As I suggest in this page of my website, I’ve long thought that those whose native language is not English are at a particular disadvantage when it comes to making sense of the language of contracts in English.

Why London? Some English lawyers might appreciate a fresh take on the subject. As I noted in the preface to A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, contracts drafted in the U.S. and the U.K. use essentially the same language. And besides, I grew up in England, and I’d enjoy the opportunity to return wearing a different hat.

These seminars are being sponsored by ACC Europe (a chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel, the premier association for in-house counsel) and by the International Association for Contract and Commercial Management. But that doesn’t mean, dear reader, that I wouldn’t appreciate your marketing assistance: if you know of anyone who might be interested in attending any of these seminars, by all means send them a link to www.adamsdrafting.com/april2007.
