7.0 MCLE Credits in Skills

This course is designed to convey critical—but often unconsidered—principles to assist both attorneys and business professionals with drafting, analyzing, and interpreting contracts. Unlike many other contract-drafting courses, this course focuses on the manner in which concepts are expressed in a contract, as well as certain substantive concepts related to the parties’ respective rights and obligations under a contract.

 

Topics addressed include:

1. SOME CONTRACT-DRAFTING PHILOSOPHY

2.  BASIC CONTRACT-DRAFTING CONCEPTS

3. SIGNATURE PAGES

4. ADVANCED CONTRACT-DRAFTING CONCEPTS

5. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS IN CONTRACTS

8. LEGAL ARCHAISMS
