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.
Join us this October for a 2-part series to hone your legal writing skills. 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.
