Translating the Business Deal into Contract Concepts
2013 Professional Development Workshop Series

Thursday, May 16, 2013 8:30 am-10:15 am

The analytic reasoning process used in drafting a contract is different from the one used in writing a persuasive document -- whether a memo or a brief. Rather than applying the law to the facts, a deal lawyer translates the client’s business concerns into legal concepts and then into contract provisions. This class is devoted primarily to teaching participants this skill. In addition, the workshop shows participants how the underlying structure of agreements is similar and how representations and warranties, covenants, and conditions precedent reflect the business deal. Finally, the participants learn a vocabulary that they can use when discussing contracts and business issues.

Speaker: Tina L. Stark, Stark Legal Education, Inc.
2.0 CLE credits in Skills
