Teaching Contract Drafting

In February 2006, I spoke about teaching contract drafting at a symposium at Brooklyn Law School. Nearly 2 years later, I have finally posted the associated essay, entitled “Integrating Contract Drafting Skills and Doctrine.” It’s brief (6 pages) and breezy, but I hope you find it useful if you teach contract drafting or are looking to incorporate more transactional material into your doctrinal courses. The abstract:

This Essay is based on my remarks at the “Teaching Writing and Teaching Doctrine: A Symbiotic Relationship?” conference at Brooklyn Law School, February 2006. The Essay discusses the benefits and challenges of integrating the teaching of contract drafting skills and doctrine. The Essay then discusses some ways I have accomplished this integration.
