Details and specs


In its 20th anniversary edition, Behind and Beyond Boilerplate: Drafting Commercial Agreements, Fourth Edition determines a practical approach by providing sample boilerplate clauses and explains their meaning with a legal framework.

It demonstrates the underlying historical common law and equitable principles that gave rise to the use of boilerplate clauses and analyzes the judicial treatment of those clauses. The publication also addresses practical issues that may rise with the use of boilerplate clauses and makes recommendations on drafting them.

  • Update of all case law affecting boilerplate clauses referenced in the third edition, including commentary on recent Supreme Court of Canada decisions that affect contract interpretation and boilerplate
