Ken Adams’s Drafting Clearer Contracts presentation is a uniquely rigorous overview of issues relating to how to say clearly and concisely in a contract whatever you want to say. It’s an introduction to his book A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting. Ken has done hundreds of in-person Drafting Clearer Contracts presentations around the world, both public and private (for government agencies, companies, and law firms).


Starting June 2023, Ken is for the first time offering a public online version of Drafting Clearer Contracts: Presentation, for individuals and groups from organizations. For more information and to register, go here. (Currently, Ken isn’t doing in-person public presentations.)


Would you like Ken to do for your organization a private Drafting Clearer Contracts presentation, whether in-person or online? That starts to become cost-effective once you have around 25 participants. With a private presentation, Ken could customize his PowerPoint slides to include examples drawn from your organization’s contract templates.

The program was highly recommended by a colleague and I now understand her enthusiasm. I have attended quite a few seminars and yesterday was the most worthwhile and the best return on investment.

Ken’s a fabulous presenter. He’s capable and quick-witted, and a joy to learn from. I heard rave reviews from colleagues, and it’s all true.

Thank you, master, I for one am in awe of your linguistic and grammatical rigor!
