Be it getting a good internship, or job or raking in moolah via freelancing, Contract Drafting is an important aspect of making a sound career in the legal field.
But does this mean every law graduate is good at it? And if not, why so?
The subject of contract law is taught in colleges but the pedagogy is theoretical and it only covers the relevant laws dealing with contracts and does not equip the students on how to deal with contracts which reduces their employability a great deal.
But there are many such courses available in the market. So, how does one choose the right course?
While choosing a course one must focus on how much importance is being given to the practical aspects of the learning process and if the necessary topics of contract drafting are being covered. Since contract drafting may encompass a huge range of topics, using the 80:20 rule should help one choose the right course unless they plan to go for a super specialization. This will also help to optimize time utilization.
Join a course which has smaller batches else it might become like any other college course where it becomes difficult to ask doubts and learn the subject in-depth.
Ensure that sufficient feedback sessions are a part of the course so that continuous skill improvement is there.
