Description


Drafting and Analyzing Contracts (called Drafting Contracts in its first two editions) is organized around the topics that are studied in the first year Contracts course. The purpose of this book is to apply the principles of contract law to the drafting of agreements. Each chapter discusses the substance of contracts as applied to drafting and suggests language that may be employed to accomplish the purpose. Drafting and Analyzing Contracts uses drafting to exemplify the principles of contract law illustrate the principles in a planning context develop the skills of a lawyer

Part I (How the Principles of Contract Law are Exemplified in Drafting) contains 14 chapters that illuminate the substantive law. For example: Chapter 7 demonstrates the problems that can arise from ambiguity and how to cure them; and Chapter 10 makes clear how drafters can use the concepts to accomplish different goals.

Part II (How the Principles of Drafting are Exemplified in Contracts) teaches techniques for contact drafting, including Drafting in Plain Language and Drafting with a Computer. Part II reinforces the substantive law and is particularly useful for classes that teach drafting.

New in this edition is Part III (How to Read and Analyze a Contract). Attorneys rely on forms and models and often employ form contracts where there is no opportunity for drafting. Therefore, attorneys must first read a contract before drafting or explaining it to a client. Students who follow the "5 passes" process for reading contracts will develop and deepen their analytical skills.
