This manual cites caselaw as part of its discussion of some usages. Most of the cited opinions are by federal or state courts in the United States, but some are by English, Canadian, and Australian courts. Because court opinions reveal usages that cause disputes and the ways in which judges can misinterpret contract language, they provide clues as to how drafters can avoid creating confusion. Because the language of contracts in English is so similar the world over, the lessons derived from caselaw are universal—what an Illinois case has to say about, for example, the potential for syntactic ambiguity to give rise to a dispute is as relevant to Australian drafters as it is to drafters in the United States.
