usage of the word "as"

0

would this sentence be grammerly correct if I changed it to the following:

In the event that Charley and Sammy's contract was valid it would be a unitateral contract

See example:

In the event that Charley and Sammy's contract was valid it would classify as a unilateral contract, this is a contract in which a promise is made by one party in return for the performance of a specific act by the other party.

'As' is not the grammatical problem here.

 

Your suggested sentence is grammatically correct ( you just need a comma), but changes to the original sentence will make everything prefect. So, let's look at the original sentence.

 

In the event that Charley and Sammy's contract was valid, it would be classified as a unilateral contract; this is a contract in which a promise is made by one party in return for the performance of a specific act by the other party.

 

Besides the comma to set off the introductory clause and the semi-colon to split up a run-on sentence, the issue you were having is an incomplete passive voice construction (don't worry passive voice is used correctly in this sentence).
