Covering the Range from Scrupulous Word Choices to Where the Commas Go
The Is Your Legal Writing Clear, Concise, and Correct? workshop helps attorneys, paralegals, and administrative assistants answer that question in the affirmative.
Whether you have worked for decades as an attorney or are a recent law school graduate, you will find our curriculum breaks down the essentials. You’ll graduate knowing exactly what makes for clear, concise, and correct legal writing.
No matter if you write 100-page briefs, letters to clients, or just emails to your colleagues, you will put immediately to work what’s covered in the workshop. Just so you know, topics like legal analysis, reasoning, and the particulars of memorandum and briefs are outside the scope of this session.
Fast-moving and immensely practical, this workshop starts with you covering word choice, sentence structure and variety, conciseness, and tone. Then you will shift into a highly engaging session covering the most critical rules for topics such as:
- Passive voice
- Run-on sentences
Back on the job, you’ll find it’s much easier to avoid issues and errors that would detract from your message and lower your credibility.
