Contract Drafting – the Million Dollar Comma Case and Kenneth Adams

Further to Simon Fodden’s post below on plain language drafting, Michael Rappaport has a nice article here in the current The Lawyer’s Weekly (Canada) interviewing Kenneth Adams, the author of a Manual of Style for Contract Drafting (2004) and other material on legal drafting.

The article discusses, among other things, the so-called “million dollar comma case” discussed previously on SLAW (here).

In fact, the article led me to check that Adams has his own (consulting) website on legal drafting at and his own blog here.

All good stuff, particularly the point made by Adams in the article in The Lawyer’s Weekly that law schools do not do a proper job of teaching legal drafting.
