Legal functionaries saddled with the responsibilities of drafting and producing legal documents need to know and apply the principles underlying the production of such documents. Legal documents seek to effectively account for the facts and law that can impact the parties to a document. The lawyer’s role in “drafting” a legal document is to ensure they identify all the relevant facts and law and then apply them to prepare a document that accomplishes their client’s goals.
Legal documents are typically a set of instructions for others to follow in an effort to fulfill the intent of one or more parties to the document. Clear, complete, and functional instructions promote the client’s goals. This course has been designed to teach the participants contemporary principles of legal drafting. Individuals and organizations require conducive legal environments, supported by reliable legal documents for effective performance.
This program is designed for Legal Directors, Legal Officers, Legal Advisers and company of organizations and Para-Legal Staff involved in the drafting and production of legal documents.
At the end of the program, participants will be able to:
- Understand the contemporary principles of legal drafting.
- Imbibe and be guided by the principles in the discharge of their duties at the end of the program.
- Draft legal document that must be clear and simple
- Refrain from using complicated legal phrases and jargon that is beyond the comprehension of a layman
- Ensure that the legal document is structured properly
