This concise book introduces students to basic contract drafting principles. It is designed specifically for instructors who want to add a short (two to six class hours) contract drafting unit to their legal writing, contracts or other courses. It explains the standard provisions contained in most commercial contracts and includes numerous examples excerpted from real contracts. The narrative portion of the book is followed by multiple practical exercises requiring students to apply and expand on the covered concepts. The second edition includes new and revised exercises and a new section on efforts modifiers.
