We'll get started. I'm Adam Eckart. I teach at Suffolk University Law School in Boston. And among other things, I teach a transactional skills or contract drafting course. I want to thank Kelli, Katherine and Sue and the entire Emory team. Today, I wanted to talk about the broadening of transactional skills courses and curriculum. For a long time, I've viewed a contract drafting course or a transactional skills course as something focused on contract drafting. And traditionally, the textbooks and materials many of us have used for skills courses have been focused on contract drafting. But recently, in teaching the course, I've tried to deliberately increase the scope of the class.
