Written in a deliberate and concise manner, devoid of United States colloquialisms, Drafting Contracts in Legal English: Cross-border Agreements Governed by U.S. Law is designed for classroom use as well as self-study. Teaching a strategic approach and sequential steps to drafting contracts, the text includes examples and exercises based on cross-border agreements such as distribution agreements, licensing, franchises and equipment leases. Special drafting issues in cross-border agreements are also considered: choice of language clauses, choice of forum clauses, indemnification provisions, force majeure clauses, counterpart clauses, international alternative dispute resolution clauses, and the choice to opt in or out of the CISG. By providing appropriate explanations of United States law, the text increases student comprehension as suggested drafting approaches are placed in legal context. This unique guide discusses the purpose of and provides drafting tips for contract parts, contract organization and formatting, basic contract provisions, letters of intent, and the craft of reviewing and revising contracts. End-of-chapter exercises test overall comprehension and apply drafting concepts presented in the chapter. To increase the non-native speakers lexical range, vocabulary is derived from a statistical analysis of thousands of authentic contracts. To help with contract sentence structures that are challenging for non-native speakers, syntax structures are based on comparison to databases with authentic contracts. A glossary of contract terms is based on frequency counts from thousands of authentic contracts and usage in text, contextualized and cross-referenced with most common collocations.

This new casebook focuses on the transactional nature of contracts. In addition to describing the law of contracts and how the law is applied in litigation, Contracts in Context: From Transaction to Litigation explores why parties enter into contracts, how written contracts are customarily structured, and why and how parties use contract design and terms to achieve their goals. It explores how parties “contract around” default requirements of the law, in addition to satisfying mandatory aspects of the law, through contracts. The book describes the role of both the transactional lawyer and litigator in working with contracts. It presents much of the material in expository fashion rather than only or primarily through cases. It then challenges students to apply that law through transactional and litigation practice and simulation problems. Professors and students will benefit from: Material presented not only on contract law, but also on contract design and terms, so that students understand how contracts and contract law support private ordering by parties Many examples of contract language to demonstrate why and how parties customize contracts to further their goals Discussion of the role of the transactional lawyer in working with contracts so that students can begin to develop important transactional skills and wrestle with some of the professional dilemmas transactional lawyers frequently face Material presented through expository text to give students a more comprehensive and clearer view of what limits the law imposes on their private ordering through contracts and which requirements can be contracted around A large set of problems, many of which involve tasks assigned to new transactional lawyers and litigators, to allow students to learn the material through active participation and critical thinking

This resource serves to educate lawyers and business professionals on how to draft the many types of "boilerplate" provisions, a legal term that refers to the standardized, one-size-fits-all provisions of a contract. Each chapter tackles one of 20 provisions and analyzes why it is important, the key legal and business issues raised, and how to draft the provision to suit a particular transaction. Such analysis not only helps readers better understand how to draft these provisions in their contracts, but also helps them better understand the other party's process.

Privatization is occurring throughout the public justice system, including courts, tribunals, and state-sanctioned private dispute resolution regimes. Driven by a widespread ethos of efficiency-based civil justice reform, privatization claims to decrease costs, increase speed, and improve access to the tools of justice. But it may also lead to procedural unfairness, power imbalances, and the breakdown of our systems of democratic governance. Civil Justice, Privatization, and Democracy demonstrates the urgent need to publicize, politicize, debate, and ultimately temper these moves towards privatized justice. Written by Trevor C.W. Farrow, a former litigation lawyer and current Chair of the Canadian Forum on Civil Justice, Civil Justice, Privatization, and Democracy does more than just bear witness to the privatization initiatives that define how we think about and resolve almost all non-criminal disputes. It articulates the costs and benefits of these privatizing initiatives, particularly their potential negative impacts on the way we regulate ourselves in modern democracies, and it makes recommendations for future civil justice practice and reform.

Jim Hunt grew up in a small town near Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. He was always tall for his age. He played basketball and baseball in high school, and was a good student. He entered the University of Delaware and studied Chemical Engineering. During his junior year in college, the CIA recruited him to monitor the radical groups on campus that were a growing concern in the U.S. government during the 1960s. After graduation from college, Jim entered the U.S. Army as a 2nd Lieutenant and attended officer's training in the Chemical Corps. He was assigned to Ft. Lewis, Washington and was immediately transferred to the Corps of Engineers, which was staffing several units for deployment to Vietnam. While at Ft. Lewis, Jim was recruited by a Chinese intelligence agency, with the full knowledge and support of the CIA. Thus began his life as a double agent. In Vietnam, Jim Hunt uncovered an operation by the North Vietnamese to assassinate Bob Hope, and participated in the take down of the assassin. After the Army, Jim joined The Dow Chemical Company, but maintained his relationships with the Chinese intelligence agency and the CIA. He helped uncover a network of Chinese spies, working out of the Chinese Embassy in Washington D.C. that were receiving information from dozens of U.S. contacts in industry and academia. His career at Dow Chemical eventually took him to Hong Kong where he and his family lived for almost a decade. He became involved in an operation where the Chinese were buying top-secret computer software from a senior official at the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA). While in Hong Kong, he recruited his Chinese handler with the Ministry of State Security (MSS) to work for the CIA. After a successful career with Dow Chemical, he retired and joined a smaller company in San Diego named Renewable Power Company. They were involved in the alternative energy business and were actively developing power plant projects in several Asian countries. While working on a project in the Philippines, two of Renewable Power's employees were kidnapped on the island of Mindanao by the MILF, a Muslim terrorist group. Jim Hunt had to use all his skill and resources to gain the freedom of his fellow employees. His final operation before retiring was to recruit a senior official of China's MSS to work for the CIA. After retirement from the CIA, the Chinese MSS, and Renewable Power Company, Jim Hunt and his wife moved to Hilton Head Island, SC for a restful retirement. Jim missed the action and decided to join the Peace Corps. He was assigned to Russia, and after a ten-week training program in Moscow, moved to Krasnoyarsk, Russia for a two-year assignment teaching business courses at a university in the middle of Siberia. When the CIA learned of his assignment, they brought him back for one more mission, to penetrate the Russian secret city, K-26, located several miles outside Krasnoyarsk, where the Russians operated nuclear reactors to produce weapons grade plutonium.
