PLI Groupcast: Fundamental Concepts in Drafting Contracts


This is a webcast of the live New York session presented by PLI and hosted by the CMBA.
Credits: 3.0 CLE Credit hours

The reduction to writing of an agreed-upon understanding among parties can sometimes be viewed as a cursory step in formalizing a business relationship. Yet 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. Unfortunately, although contract counterparties might have the best of intentions, many contracts - even those drafted by experienced attorneys and those relating to the most prominent of transactions - are plagued with ambiguities, inconsistencies, unintended imprecision, and “bloat” from rhetorical emphasis, rendering them confusing, risky, and potentially very costly. This course is designed to convey fundamental - but often unconsidered - principles to assist both newly admitted and seasoned attorneys 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, rather than the substance of any provision or contract in particular.
