The Bad (and Good) News About Contract Language and the Contract Process
March 14, 2014
In this webinar, contract-drafting specialist Ken Adams explores the problems that afflict traditional contract language and the traditional copy-and-paste contract process and how organizations can address those problems. Topics covered include “the categories of contract language,” the different kinds of ambiguity, and selected usages, for example “indemnify and hold harmless.” Ken will also consider the benefits of using document-assembly for high-volume contracts. The webinar will close with a question-and-answer session.
Ken Adams is a speaker and consultant on contract drafting. He's author of A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting (ABA 3d ed. 2013), a comprehensive guide to the building blocks of contract language and common sources of confusion. He gives public and in-house seminars on contract drafting throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as in Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East. And he's a pioneer in contract automation. The Legal Writing Institute has awarded Ken the 2014 Golden Pen Award "to recognize his exemplary work in contract drafting." Ken can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
