Transactional Drafting

B709 is taught by M. Need

In this course, students start with the #nuts and bolts# of contract drafting and proceed through the process of incorporating deal terms into contract provisions. Students will study both stylistic and legal conventions and their relationship to one another in a range of contract types. Through the lectures, in-class exercises, and drafting homework assignments, students will learn how to identify risks and draft clear contract provisions that minimize ambiguity and control those risks. The course is designed for students who are interested in corporate or commercial law, but it is useful to any student who will be drafting and negotiating contracts in his or her legal career.

Note: 3Ls have priority for this course.
