Published by the American Bar Association (ABA), Contract Drafting: Powerful Prose in Transactional Practice by Lenne Eidson Espenschied serves as a complete how-to guide for lawyers that are new to transactional practice, as well as more experienced lawyers looking to reinforce their skills. This clearly written guide explains how the drafting process works; how transactional lawyers work from prior documents to produce effective and complete legal documents that protect the client's interests. It is a supremely practical guide that is straightforward and to the point, organized for ease of use, and full of important tips and techniques.

In addition to the fundamentals, Contract Drafting also covers advanced drafting techniques for avoiding ambiguity by making better word choices, crafting strong sentences, and eliminating contextual ambiguity. With this book at their fingertips, a contract drafter will be well equipped to create powerful, to-the-point prose in transactional practice.

Lenne' Eidson Espenschied practiced transactional law for almost 25 years and the book is rooted in her experience. This book is a realistic resource that can even be used to teach drafting skills to law students. Each of the 14 chapters contains about a week's worth of material, with allowances for classroom discussion of graded assignments and special research projects.
