Program

Day 1

Part 1 will cover a quick refresher of basic principles of drafting in plain English, do’s and don’ts of drafting emails and zoom in on drafting for clarity, drafting for legal analysis and drafting for strategy. The attendees will break-out in groups to do drafting exercises where the trainer will furnish them with feedback while she goes round the room.

Day 2

Part 2 will discuss the basic principles of drafting commercial contracts, issues to consider when putting together a commercial contract and explore amending some sample clauses based on differing sets of instructions from clients. It will also discuss the considerations to bear in mind when drafting international contracts where the parties are from different jurisdictions. This segment will conclude with attendees drafting a communication for strategy and putting together the framework for a commercial contract which does not have any template.
