West Legalworks and I are pleased with the way things have been going. For one thing, attendance has been steadily increasing and participants have been recommending the seminar to colleagues. And you’d be surprised at the mirth that a seminar on contract drafting can generate! Now if I could only ensure that the room is always the right temperature and that the audio works every time …

But I’d like to see a higher proportion of law-firm lawyers at the seminars. Hey, you might learn something! And for contract language to improve, everyone has to be at the table.

And if you, Mr. or Ms. In-House Lawyer, elect to send your contract managers or paralegals to one of my seminars, you might want to think about coming along too. That way you won’t be mystified by the scary changes they propose implementing afterwards.

In the coming days I’ll be updating the rest of the site to reflect these new dates.
