This on-demand material was recorded on 29 January 2021

For years, drafting contracts resulted in dense and ambiguous words. Rapid developments in technology can allow lawyers to draft without being constrained by words alone. Drafting can now incorporate many other tools that allow those reading and using contracts to understand them quicker and easier and thus better. 

At the end of this on-demand course, you will: 

  • Understand current problems reported by users of contracts
  • Learn about how contracts have improved over time
  • Learn what we as lawyers can do to improve our contract drafting
  • Appreciate different types of contracting offerings such as comic contracts, visualisations, checklists and more.

At the end of this on-demand course, you may claim 1 CPD point. Please consult the CPD rules for your State/Territory to ascertain how many CPD points you can claim for private study of audio/visual material during the CPD year.  

Due to new reporting requirements introduced by the Legal Practice Board of Western Australia on 1 April 2021, practitioners holding WA practising certificates are not currently eligible to claim CPD points for this product.
