Drafting clearly and effectively


Mr. Tony Herbert was for many years a partner of Allen & Overy. He was at various times Head of the International Capital Market Department, Managing Partner and Head of the Corporate Department. He now gives lectures and seminars as part of their training programmes.

Course Outline

During this lecture Mr. Herbert will focus on the drafting of documents. Clients often complain that lawyers write in a manner which is difficult to understand; however it is the lawyer’s job to make things clear and to make what might be complicated more intelligible.
During the first part of this lecture, Mr. Herbert will explain how to approach drafting different kinds of documents (including e-mails) giving as many practical examples and suggestions as possible while during the second part a legal document will be analysed applying the techniques suggested earlier.
