Do you know how to draft a deed of hypothecation? In fact, do you know what a deed of hypothecation is?
Do you have a definitive checklist for drafting a contract?
Do you know the effective formatting techniques for a contract or the relevance of each of the clauses?
I always struggled with contract drafting in my initial years as a litigation lawyer. I could draft an application or petition with much ease, but when it came to drafting a contract, I was confounded. The reason was simply lack of hands-on experience!
I did know the basic boilerplate clauses, but each client came with specific needs. It was difficult for me to know which necessary clauses or language I should provide for in the contract! Imagine being a lawyer and a client coming to you for your expert advice. You have the advice ready, but you are unable to implement it. All because your day-to-day work does not give you enough room to build the required skill-set.
You keep putting off learning how to draft a contract for reasons like lack of time, lack of knowledge or that you have college assignments or clients waiting! But you know deep down, all these are manageable things. You can plan your day and set aside time to learn new skills and contract drafting. But you just don’t know how to effectively do it.
You can mull over the books and materials. But unless you understand the nuances, practice the skill, and get relevant feedback, you know it cannot work effectively.
