Letters of intent can be used in situations where a group of students wish to organize a specific club or perhaps a new fraternity. In the letter they can state their reasons for taking this action, how many members they expect to have and what they think they are going to accomplish. The letter can also outline the requirements for membership and in many cases the basic rules of behavior that will be expected for continued membership. Students might also write a skillfully prepared letter to the admissions office of the college they wish to attend and include it with the rest of their application package.
A confidentiality agreement puts each party on notice that what is being discussed is solely for each party and only for the stated purpose within the agreement. The critical elements within the confidentiality agreement are therefore that parties must specifically state the type of information that is being disclosed and also the intended purpose for which the information is to be used.
