I've come to rely on the phrase "an informed consumer of contract language." For example, it features in the title of this post on my other blog (the Adams on Contract Drafting blog).
I figured that since the phrase looms so large, it might be interesting to explore the implications of being an informed consumer of contract language. So I prevailed on Laura Briscoe, Kaitlyn Fydenkevez, and Adam Tabor to join me in a conversation on the subject. (They all took my course Drafting Clearer Contracts: Masterclass and made the mistake of being perceptive and demonstrating interest!)
The result was the three videos on display below. Part 1 is about how being an informed consumer of contract language affects your dealings with others. Part 2 is about whether the notion of being an informed consumer of contract language is becoming more broadly recognized. And part 3 is about how becoming an informed consumer of contract language is an ongoing process. They weigh in at 9:23, 5:50, and 5:33 minutes, respectively. By today's standards, that's equivalent to War and Peace, but some of you might have the necessary stamina!
Yes, I'm aware that I need to explore getting higher-definition video. There goes my influencer cred! 😉
My thanks to Laura, Kait, and Adam for joining me. I thought it would be refreshing to hear from people other than the social-media usual suspects (including me), and I was right.
