AbstractLaw students, trainees and even junior lawyers generally find the drafting of commercial agreements difficult. In this paper, the author examines the performance of different groups of students in agreement drafting in the Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) course at the University of Hong Kong, and shares some of her insights and experiences in teaching agreement drafting. The author argues that the major problems of the students lie as much in their unfamiliarity with legal practice and their habits in rote learning, as their insensitivity to the English language. The author also discusses the measures to be adopted to address these problems.
