Trying to avoid a run-on sentence


All the information in the text example need to be included in one sentence.

See example:

For the length of the Agreement, University has and will maintain all necessary authorizations and approvals necessary with each Facility, which allows Students on or about the Facility's premises to engage in practical learning and clinical experiences under a provider's supervision, such authorizations and approvals shall include without limit an Affiliation Agreement or other such similar agreement with each Facility.

I'm not sure why it all has to be in one sentence, but it sounds like you need a lawyer for this one. Aaron?

There is no legal requirement for all of this to be in one sentence. I also don't see a reason for the garrulous litigious lawyer inside of you to make an unnecessarily convoluted and esoteric run-on sentence. More power to you. The affiliation agreements are not yet formalized and thus have no proper name. Don't capitalize them like they are legally binding and enforceable contracts with the "facilities" until they are actually formed.

My rule of thumb is: if my inner lawyer feels the need to legally cover my ass, I probably need to hire a lawyer.

The run-on occurs after 'supervision', so how about replacing that comma with a semicolon?
