Quick question

Postby samantha.b233 » Tue Sep 24, 2013 3:52 am

I want to use a term in my personal statement. Can I say "covenant not to compete" or should I refer to a more broad "non-compete clause" so that the ad com don't get confused?

Thanks!

Sometimes adcomms are not lawyers. Actually, they often aren't. But anyway, what you're saying is in different areas of law. Covenants are firmly a property law term, e.g. deeds, leases. Non-compete clauses refer more often to contracts, e.g. employment contracts, but could also refer to lease agreements I guess. I'd use clause since it's more general imo.
