CLE Credit: Yes

Event Description
6.0 Credit Hours

What lawyers want to write is often different from what judges and clients

want to read. This interactive class offers practical tools that will help make your next brief, letter, memo, or e-mail concise and more powerful. You will find out the difference a well-crafted sentence can make, using examples from actual memos and briefs, hands-on exercises, and judges' comments. You will learn how to:

Trim the clutter

Refine your structure

Improve the flow

Integrate legal authority effectively

Draft winning facts

Avoid doing the little things that bug judges

And much, much more!



Course materials provide examples and models along with valuable checklists and practical tips.
