Communication is integral to the practice of law. Having the skill set and knowledge base to produce well-written legal documents, such as contracts or litigation documents, greatly benefits your practice. Attendees will walk away from this program with an expanded skill set, an ability to assess what makes for a good or bad piece of legal writing, and an awareness of common crucial errors and how to avoid them. Each session will include an interactive component; attendees will be asked to take part in writing exercises to apply and practice the concepts delivered in each session.
Part 1 Topics:
- An overview of legal writing as related to contracts, litigation documents, and bylaws
- Common crucial errors and how to avoid them
- Standard clauses, such as representations vs. warranties, consideration clauses, indemnify vs. hold harmless, and reasonable efforts
- What makes for a bad piece of legal writing and how to fix it
