Webinar explores language of contracts

Brampton lawyer-linguist Suzanne Deliscar will share her insights on the language of contracts with linguists via a webinar program.

The Language of Contracts: Reading and Understanding Contracts will take place on Oct. 23 at 10 a.m. During this two-hour course, Deliscar, founder of Deliscar Professional Corporation, will dissect the standard clauses and terminology found in contracts, as well as analyze the structure of contracts to assist legal translators.

The session will include instruction on: the language of contracts, reading and understanding contracts and standard contract clauses; effectively using shall, shall not, must and will; words and phrases that don't belong in legal documents; archaic terms in legal English (hereinafter, therein, etc.) and other terms of reference and word formation; keeping contract provisions readable and clear (reducing average sentence length); how to organize a contract and use definitions effectively; and identifying conditional contract clauses.

At the end of this course, attendees will be able to identify the various standard clauses in a contract.
