In the practice of law, clients look to their attorneys to not only be an authority regarding legal interpretation, but to also understand and anticipate the nuances of complex transactions. When properly analyzed and crafted, a legal agreement will clearly allocate and describe responsibilities and risks. Combining discussions of relevant laws and legal scenarios, along with drafting and negotiation assignments, this class continues the academic introduction of contracts and offers essential skills for success in practice.
