SRA Competency B


Development work involves complex documents containing tricky clauses. It is all too easy to get the drafting of these clauses wrong, especially if you are not used to the terminology used, or the implications of specialist areas of law such as planning and construction. Similarly, it can be difficult to know what amendments to make to these clauses when receiving a document from the other side.

This course will focus entirely on drafting - both the initial drafting of clauses and the drafting of amendments to clauses - using numerous examples of clauses that are frequently found in development documentation.
