Commercial Contract Drafting Skills

Commercial Contract Drafting Skills

Drafting is a core legal skill, especially important for lawyers working in the transactional field. However, it is only briefly covered during vocational education. This hands-on training course seeks to address this skills gap by providing an intensive learning experience in fundamental techniques and writing skills, enabling participants to draft more effective and robust agreements for their clients. 

The training session is highly practical, involving a range of drafting exercises set in the context of typical commercial transactions. It provides a highly active learning experience; with an emphasis on delegate-led learning through discussion, individual exercises, group work and trainer feedback.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The course is particularly suitable for junior lawyers, as well as more experienced practitioners, who are either planning to move into this area or are looking for a refresher of the key principles.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

  • Improve your drafting skills whether using precedents or drafting agreements from scratch;
  • Produce clauses and agreements which address relevant legal and factual issues;
  • Use clear, accurate and succinct language in your drafting; and
  • Have opportunity to get feedback on your drafting from an experienced former practitioner.
