Refine your legal writing skills with this informative seminar that teaches you how to draft concise language, avoid ambiguous wording, and identify which information is
essential for inclusion in your writing!
Gone are the long, flowing e-mail messages with pretty graphics and lots of attachments. Today’s communication – almost 100% electronic – is immediate, brief, clear, and powerful. Designed to boost your instant (or near-instant) message drafting skills, this program examines the ways in which lawyers’ traditional training in writing and communication ill-prepares them for this new age of “short and to the point.” Lawyers are communicating with clients and each other far differently than their mentors did – and far differently than how they were taught in law school – and many need help making the transition. Join nationally acclaimed speaker, Steven Stark, as he teaches the principles of good legal writing in these areas:
- Technical writing
Attendees receive a copy of Steven Stark’s book Writing to Win: The Legal Writer.
- Letters and e-mails
- Litigation writing
- Contract drafting
