Northwestern to host drafting conference

Teaching students how to draft contracts will be the subject of what appears to be an excellent upcoming conference at Northwestern University on July 20-21.  It's called, aptly enough, Teaching Contract Drafting.  Among the topics:

* Why Today's Law Schools Should Teach Contract Drafting
* How Contract Concepts and the Business Deal Affect Contract Drafting
* Essential Guidelines for Competent Drafting
* Stand-Alone Drafting Courses
* Merging Drafting Instruction into Substantive Courses
* Teaching Methods and Practical Advice

What's interesting about the conference is that it's bringing together contracts teachers with legal writing and clinical people for what what looks to be a fruitful discussion.  Information is available at the conference's web site.  A PDF of the brochure is here.
