Ethical Issues in Contract Drafting

Last month, I gave a presentation entitled Ethical Issues in Contract Drafting to a group of lawyers. My slides.

An interesting anecdote about this presentation–I had a former Vice President of the United States in my audience. At this point in my career, I’ve given a lot of presentations in front of a lot of important people, so I don’t normally get “star struck” any more. However, I must confess it was rather unsettling to have a VPOTUS listening intently to my talk. I was too nervous to approach him after the talk. What would you say to someone who was one heartbeat away from having his finger on The Button?
