American Bar Association

In the Press

 

Mr. Love was recently quoted in the American Bar Association publication, Student Lawyer, for his work in judging the National Appellate Advocacy Competition Championship. The article, "Flight Simulators" for Future Litigators, looks at the four client skills and moot court competitions run by the ABA to train law students and compare their skill against national competitor. The National Appellate Advocacy Competition Championship sets the bar for advocacy letting students learn the skills that let them win in court.

 

Unlike in debate teams or even moot court competitions, students competing in the National Appellate Advocacy Competition are faced with a selection of experienced judges with differing opinions and backgrounds including: US District Judges, Partners of Law Firms, Chief Justices of State Supreme Courts, Law Professors, Former U.S. Department of Justice attorneys, and Corporate Counsel.  Despite the variety of professional backgrounds, the judges' common goal is to provide a "hot" bench for the students, by employing laser like dissection of the legal theories and by finding the weak spots in a team's arguments.

 

The untested and new legal cases presented allow students and judges to stretch their advocacy skills by removing the comfortable, yet inapplicable, solutions found within their studies or businesses. Rather than using only theory or practice, students face a crucible of applying persuasion and practicality to not only win over the judges, but also to anticipate the actions of other national teams. For the judges, the competition is a test of combating ineffective advocacy while spotting weakness and strength in the arguments of others.

Common Question

Tips on reading a contract.

 

Contracts, are for some, unbearably long and needlessly wordy. Sooner or later our firm gets asked the question, "How can I quickly read and make sense of a confusing contract?"

 

We respond by fixing the "best answer" that attorneys tend to give, while giving some general points. Much like autobiographies, the "story" contracts tell depend on the perspective of the author. As such, we suggest the following best common answer if modified. (We are not giving you legal advice. It would be unwise to take uninformed advice from the Internet and we are uninformed about your specific legal problem, after all you aren't our client.)

 

The best (and perhaps most frustrating) common answer is to "ask an attorney to explain it to you". Yet this is only half an answer. A contract if properly written should be understandable by the people meant to sign it, even if they do not fully know the legal consequences of signing it. Practically this means even if you understand everyone's obligations under the contract, the legal consequences of those obligations may be lost without context and analysis.  The "(modified) best common answer" is learn all you can about the contract and before you sign it get an attorney to focus on looking at it carefully. Four points to take home are as follows:

 

First, the purpose of most contracts, and each sentence, is about getting and giving something up. You should be able to figure out what is given up and what you get in each sentence.

 

Second, understand the special definitions in the contract. They may be set apart in some way, be defined in context, by reference, or by common usage.  For instance, there is a difference between a "Term" and a "term" if one is defined.

 

Third, everything is important. If something is boilerplate or a "standard" contract it pays to read it and understand it. One person's normal is rarely another person's normal.

 

Fourth, the ability to take a contract home and review it is essential. If we can't take the contract home before we sign it and have a third party review it, we don't sign it. You, of course, can make your own choice.

 

If you deal in contracts often, then a good attorney will teach you how to read them.
