Contract Drafting Workshop: Housing Transactions (2)

This is a two-credit workshop that builds on the Fall 2017 Housing Law course. The Workshop requires students to complete multiple writing assignments, as we explore essentials of negotiating, reading, drafting and enforcing a variety of agreements in common housing transactions. Students will act as attorneys for the parties in hypothetical housing situations, and will work in teams to understand the elements of the deal between the parties, and then translate the parties’ deal into appropriate contractual form, using contract and property concepts and terminology, and formulate advice for resolving later-arising disputes based on the transactional documents. Workshop students will learn how to structure and format a contract; write to maximize clarity; build skill in reading, review and mark-up of transactional documents; and develop legal advice to a client as to obligations under governing agreements.
