This course explores the basics of contract drafting by having students act as lawyers and clients in a hypothetical transaction. Students will research governing law on sales of goods, and financing through secured transactions, then negotiate and draft the documents in the transaction. Instead of a final paper, students will draft and edit four types of contract documents: a Bill of Sale; Promissory Note; Security Agreement; and Financing Statements. Students will learn how to structure and format a contract, write to maximize clarity, and manage conflict as the transaction proceeds.
