Course Leader

  • Kenneth A. Adams is the leading authority on contract language. His book, A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting is one of the ABA’s best-selling titles and has become an essential resource for contract drafters.

From 2006 to 2012, Ken was a lecturer in law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where he taught the school’s first course on contract drafting. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, Ken practiced corporate law at major law firms in the U.S. and Europe. His website and blog are www.adamsdrafting.com.
