Contract drafting is a highly sought after a skill, and something that your law school will not be teaching you. Sure you will be learning some section from the Contract Act as well as case laws but it is not going to cut the ice when it comes to drafting real-life contracts.
Try drafting a contract and you will know.
If you work in a law firm or a company as an in-house lawyer, you will be spending a lot of time drafting contracts. Or in case you don’t know the work, then learning by messing up and cleaning up the mess repeatedly is going to cost time, money and opportunities.
If you want to start your first job on a high note, with a great grasp on drafting, negotiation or enforcement, or if you are having a job already but struggling with contracts and the next promotion depends on it, or even if you are struggling to retain your job, learning the skill of contract drafting as well as negotiation is going to help you a lot.
What is most important in a contract is clarity and lack of ambiguity. you need to foresee the issues that may arise in a transaction or the business relationship and address them ahead of time in the contract.
You need to understand the business dynamics that is behind the contract. You need a certain kind of business acumen too. you need to be familiar with various types of clauses and know why, where, how and when to use them.
However, many Indian lawyers have poor drafting skills since the practical aspects of the practice of law and not focused upon in law school. Therefore, most law students do not receive proper training in contract drafting, and almost no training at all when it comes to contract negotiation
