LAW 6922 - Lawyering Skills: Transactional III

Legal Writing

In transactions, lawyers are expected to negotiate, draft, and interpret agreements. Lawyers need to know how to document "deals" that meet the client's objectives, follow the law, and are commercially reasonable. In this course we will move beyond the legal theory of a contract into the practical skills required to draft, interpret, and negotiate various agreements. This course will benefit any budding lawyer as even career litigators need to have transactional legal writing experience as they often write settlement agreements or may be representing clients in lawsuits stemming from contracts.
