The courts tell us how to draft, and we ignore the judicial precedents at our peril. We can’t draft an effective contract without a healthy respect for the daunting complexities of contract law, which is always changing. Most contract cases are won, lost, or best of all, avoided altogether before the document is even signed—in the drafting stage. This webinar was forged in the fires of messy, mystifying, real-world cases.
You will learn that:
- The courts tell us how we must draft many of the most standard contract provisions–ignoring the precedents could render the clauses ineffective.
- We can’t draft “boilerplate” by copying from a formbook–the judicial precedents must guide us, and there is no substitute for understanding the latest developments in the law.
