This is a hands-on course designed to train students in how to analyze technology contracts and how to draft some of today's most widely used forms of technology agreements. The course will take a detailed look at every aspect of contract drafting - why some clauses work and why others don't. Common provisions used in technology agreements will be reviewed in detail, particularly those standard, "boilerplate" terms that many lawyers have a tendency to skip over. Actual contracts in use today will be dissected and students will be given opportunities to draft clauses, sections of contracts, and eventually entire agreements.
The grade in this course will be determined through a series of graded drafting exercises and a final exam.
