In this course you will learn to apply the principles of contract law to the planning, development, and interpretation of written agreements that accomplish a client's objectives. Primary emphasis will be given to understanding contractual language, the acquisition of contract interpretation skills as well as the fundamentals of legal drafting and the integration of substantive law. The course will focus on the structuring of contracts and will review common clauses, as well as the negotiation of contact terms.
