The first of two intensive programs, this OsgoodePD course was designed to provide lawyers, contract managers and contract drafters with a comprehensive and disciplined approach to contract drafting. Ken Adams has developed a thoughtful and rigorous curriculum that will benefit both junior and more experienced drafters.
The focus is not on what to include in a contract, but how to express it clearly and effectively.
In this course, Ken Adams will build on the content of his book to provide a comprehensive foundation for contract drafting. This practical one-day course will cover:
Materials for the course will include a copy of Ken Adams’ book, A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting (2013, 3rd edition), one of the American Bar Association’s best-sellers. It’s the only book of its kind, and has become a valued resource to the legal profession. Here is what one practitioner has said about Ken’s book:
“A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting is filled with practical advice. It certainly fills a need – the vast majority of agreements out there violate the principles Ken Adams states so clearly. Every lawyer who drafts or interprets contracts should have a copy of this book within reach.”
