Toronto Only, on December 4: “An Intensive Program in the Categories of Contract Language”

On December 3, I’m giving a public “Drafting Clearer Contracts” seminar in Toronto with my longtime partner, Osgoode Professional Development. For more information, go here.

But I’m particularly interested in what comes after that: On December 4, I’m doing for the first time a new seminar entitled—excuse me while I catch my breath—”Advanced ‘Drafting Clearer Contracts’: An Intensive Program in the Categories of Contract Language.”

Here’s how OPD describes it:

Explore in-depth what is generally regarded as the foundation of Ken’s approach to contract drafting – the categories of contract language. In this intensive day long program, you will refine your ability to recognize the different kinds of meaning conveyed in contracts and how to use verb structures to convey them clearly, concisely, and consistently.

Ken will advance beyond his discussion of the categories of contract language in Drafting Clearer Contracts by offering additional guidance on how to implement these lessons in your own drafting. You’ll engage in hands-on exercises, as well as analysis of sample commercial contracts, and you’ll receive feedback from Ken. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the expert and develop advanced drafting practices.

One component will be a multiple-choice quiz that we’ll go through one-by-one, with participants answering using their internet-enabled device of choice.

For now, I’m offering this only in Toronto, simply because some 1,400 people have attended my Toronto “Drafting Clearer Contracts” seminars over the years. That’s more than in any other city, and it makes for a decent pool to market this program to.
