Many great features ensure the value and reliability of this text: - Emphasizes the nexus between the business deal and the contract, throughout: i.

5.0 étoiles sur 5A Must-Have for Every Transactional Attorney and Business Professional10 janvier 2008

The majority of law books on the market today add more confusion and fog to understanding basic legal principles. "Hide-the-ball" as opposed to "this is how you solve this type of problem" seems to be the status quo. As my first year property law professor once said, "the moment you solve a legal problem for you client is the moment you stop getting paid." So, you can understand why most attorneys and "legal experts" play hide-the-ball. Also, one major reason for the large quantity of litigation clogging our civil courtrooms is due to poor legal drafting.
In "Drafting Contracts," author Tina L. Stark provides the best "How To" guide on the market today for drafting and understanding contracts in the United States. Ms. Stark has checklists, examples, and step-by-step instructions of how to draft a preventive legal document.

4.0 étoiles sur 5A Good Introduction to Drafting Contracts3 octobre 2009
Par Thomas Oswald - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a text for teaching Contract Drafting that fills its intended purpose very well. I recommend it highly to individuals just learning contracts.
If you have experience drafting contracts or want to improve your contract drafting skills, then I recommend Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, Second Edition by Ken Adams.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Easy to read, but detailed enough for intermediate10 juillet 2010
Par Rochelle - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a good intro to drafting contracts. Well organized chapters for the beginner and plenty of examples of right and wrong ways to write. Teaches "PLain English" contract writing, and avoids "Legalease". Has enough detail to make it interesting for someone familiar with writing contracts. I like the book, and used it in a paralegal course.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Great Reference Book16 mars 2013
Par Courtney Kleshinski - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book was assigned as one of my law school class textbooks. This is one of those rare textbooks that actually teaches its students practical skills, and one of the few I’ll actually keep around to refer to after graduation. This is the best “how-to” guide I’ve read on drafting and understanding contracts. The book also includes examples, checklists and step-by-step instructions on how to draft clear, effective contracts.
The exercises at the end of chapter tended to be a bit lengthy and simplistic, but they covered all of the concepts discussed in the chapter.
