Event Description

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.
