Overview

There are many resources to help lawyers write more clearly.  But most advocates of “plain language” for lawyers have focused on rules of general applicability and have largely overlooked the real-estate lawyer’s unique drafting challenges. This session will resurvey the real-estate drafter’s terrain and illustrate how the best modern “plain language” principles can realistically be applied to ensure that real-estate documents can be understood by the people they affect. 

Recorded at the Real Estate Institute in November 2023.
