Short Drafting Exercise
Susan Jones, the owner of the local nightclub, WorDance Spot LLC (“WorDance”), has
approached you, her new MBA-employee in the contracting department, for help with a current
problem. Last year on September 1, Susan signed a local high school student James Smith to be
the DJ for a teen night at her club. The written agreement signed by both parties called for
James to receive two hundred dollars ($200) for every night he performed, and required James to
exclusively perform at WorDance. The original oral agreement between the parties had a two
year term. James has become quite popular and attendance at the club has increased dramatically

a final decision on March 1, the day he turns 18. Susan wants to have all documentation ready,
and is prepared to pay James a five hundred dollar ($500) signing bonus if he continues
performing at WorDance. Discuss any problems with the current agreement between James and
Susan. Please draft a short document that will satisfy Susan’s need to retain James at
