Teaching Drafting and Transactional Skills: The Basics and Beyond
First National Conference
This conference offered those who teach drafting and transactional skills the knowledge and tools they need to comprehensively train students who are studying these areas of law. The conference included sessions for beginning, experienced, and potential teachers of drafting and other transactional skills. Conference participants had the opportunity to learn new substantive material and to explore methods of teaching that material. Panels explored how to create contract drafting exercises, the impact of information technology on contract drafting, and how to teach transactional skills in clinics, in simulation courses, in first-year and upper-level doctrinal courses, and in first-year writing courses. In addition, panels covered the basics of contract drafting, due diligence, and third-party opinion letters. Finally, the conference offered those at the forefront of developing these new courses a forum in which to exchange ideas about teaching, and promoting the teaching of, transactional law and skills.
