The manner in which concepts are expressed on a page is often as important as the concepts themselves. Solid contract-drafting skills are therefore essential tools to any professional who deals with transactions or business relationships. This comprehensive 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.

Highlighted in this program are:

  • the importance of language in contracts
  • critical—but often unconsidered—principles to assist both attorneys and business professionals with drafting, analyzing, and interpreting contracts
  • the manner in which concepts are expressed in a contract
  • substantive concepts related to the parties’ respective rights and obligations under a contract
