There are many lawyers who revel in the fine-tuning of documents. They are amazed at the placement of commas. They can speak for long periods of time about sentence structure and word choice. I am not one of them. Don't take me wrong. I love drafting. I booked Legal Drafting in law school. I even like to edit. I like to have precision in my language and I can understand wanting a high level of precision in a uniform law. But as a spectator sport? How much of this can one take?
Today is expected to be historic in the Collaborative Law movement. I'm in Santa Fe, observing the proceedings of the Uniform Law Commission as the Uniform Collaborative Law Act (UCLA) is being considered.
