Event Description
6.0 Credit Hours (7.0 Skills Credit Hours for New York)  


Knowing the law is essential - but so is being able to communicate about it. This class explores the fundamentals (and the critical details) of creating clear, well-organized, persuasive legal documents. Briefs, memos, client letters, even daily correspondence benefit from your deeper understanding of what goes into successful writing. You'll examine good and not-so-good writing to see what worked, what didn't, and why. You'll get advice for steering clear of the grammar and usage potholes that can undermine your credibility. You'll even learn tips for avoiding the dreaded “legalese” while still getting the job done. Join writing coach and former attorney Rick Horowitz for a lively and practical session that will reintroduce you to your legal-writing toolbox, including a few tools you didn't know were in there. You'll come away with new skills, new strategies, and new confidence. Class is limited to 30 registrants.
