Introduction to Legal Drafting

Legal drafting is an important skill for lawyers – it involves learning how to draft various kinds of petitions to be filed in court, drafting contracts for clients, preparation of legal opinions or ‘legal memos’ (not moot court memos). These skills enable a lawyer to perform different kinds of billable work for clients and provide them value.

These skills are highly valuable, but they are either not taught or taught in a very limited manner in law school. 

Although we have courses focussing on different areas of law, ranging from criminal litigation, civil litigation, contract drafting, business laws for in-house counsels, arbitration, NCLT Litigation, M&A, etc., over the past few years, thousands of learners have asked us for an introductory drafting course which enables them to get started with the practical side of the law.  

We have decided to launch this course, keeping in mind such requests. 

Legal drafting is crucial for any lawyer to perform client work effectively. As you gain more expertise, you may realize that drafting skills for different forums and different areas of law will differ. 

For example, petitions before a criminal court will be different from petitions before the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) or from arbitration petitions. Similarly, a shareholders agreement will be very different from an employment agreement. 

However, basic legal drafting skills and practice is crucial for performing any kind of client work. When one starts learning, it is important to have a broad foundation. At this stage, it does not matter if you are not sure about which area of law you want to focus on and specialize in. 

What do these drafting skills comprise?  

Learning how to draft a handful of contracts, civil and criminal petitions. This will enable you to have a preliminary sense of how to provide a service to a client. 

These drafting skills and practice will enable you to build confidence and feel equipped to understand and handle a variety of tasks assigned to junior lawyers.
