Transactional Skills presents the three essential skills required for proper contract preparation. First, the book introduces the student to the basic principles and ethics of writing a contract. Second, it introduces the student to basic contract terms and how to deal with those terms, as well as to certain basic contracts that the student will encounter as a practicing attorney. And finally, Transactional Skills provides the student with basic negotiating tools and how to use them, derived from more that 50 years of practice by the author. The book is designed to work interactively with the second edition of Exercises in Commercial Transactions, published by Carolina Academic Press, and Commercial Agreements—A Lawyer's Guide to Drafting and Negotiating, published by Thomson Reuters, which law students and their teachers can access online without charge.
