Professors Johnson and Rawson to Give "Introduction to Transactional Drafting" CLE

The Boyd School of Law is very pleased to announce that Professor Lori Johnson and Adjunct Professor Rick Rawson are scheduled to give an "Introduction to Transactional Drafting" continuing legal education on February 22, 2013.

The program, which is co-sponsored with the State Bar of Nevada, will introduce beginning lawyers to critical skills for contract drafting that practitioners of all backgrounds may encounter, with a focus in the area of real estate law. Seasoned lawyers who are new to the field of transactional work may also find the session helpful to expand and hone their contract drafting skills. The session will begin with tips on successfully identifying and drafting the main components of a contract (including recitals, representations, warranties, covenants, and conditions), and move into more specific tips about drafting in the real estate context (including conveyances and free available resources).

The CLE, which begins at 1:30 p.m. on February 22, will be held in the Thomas & Mack Moot Court Facility and has been approved for 3.0 CLE credits. Additional registration information is available here.
