Comment: In her article, Has Parity Finally Arrived for Transactional Skills Training? Not Even Close, Tina Stark raises a rallying cry for including transactional training in first-year Contracts. She declares, ""It astounds me that the Academy has not yet recognized the unqualified need to teach an area of law that has existed since at least Babylonian times. Indeed, the Code of Hammurabi recognized the salience of contract law. According to that unimpeachable source, Wikipedia, at least half of the Code of Hammurabi is devoted to contract law." I couldn't agree more. More than half of attorneys do transactional work, but most law schools do not offer courses in contract drafting or other transactional skills.
