    We all negotiate write contracts as part of our daily practice. Lawyers and their firms have forms that they use, reuse, amend, and then reuse again. These lengthy forms are often filled with legalese and with convoluted sentences that can run on for a page or more, but that’s okay, isn’t it, because we all know what these verbose documents mean, right? Wait, are you sure that’s the correct answer? The purpose of a form, ultimately, is to have it enforced in a court of law. If we have to explain to a judge or jury the meaning or intent of a contract, that’s one more hurdle to success.


    The ABA will seek 1 hours of CLE credit in 60-minute states, and 1.2 hours of CLE credit for this program in 50-minute states. Credit hours are estimated and are subject to each state’s approval and credit rounding rules. Please visit www.americanbar.org/mcle for general information on CLE at the ABA.
