The First International (Bilingual) Contract Negotiation and Drafting Workshop for Law Students

As a special feature of the March 2017 conference, we’re also planning a workshop on contract negotiation and drafting for law students. In this workshop, English and Spanish speaking law students will act in teams to negotiate and draft a simple business contract – for example, a franchise agreement for a hotel or restaurant. Negotiations will take place in English and Spanish, and the resulting document will be drafted in both languages.
