Writing for Lawyers
We offer general legal-writing workshops for attorneys in all practice areas. We also offer legal-writing programs that are customized for particular practice areas or for groups such as summer associates, new associates, or mid-level associates.
These are our core general legal-writing programs:
Writing for Lawyers: The Essentials of Effective Legal Writing
Participants in this two-hour, hands-on workshop learn practical strategies for eliminating common writing weaknesses, including ineffective organization, weak paragraph structure, and convoluted sentences. This workshop emphasizes general writing skills, but sessions can be tailored to a particular practice area. The workshop is geared toward junior or summer associates but provides a useful review for attorneys at all levels.
Writing for Lawyers II: Guidelines for Drafting Polished Legal Prose
This two-hour general legal-writing workshop moves beyond the fundamentals and teaches mid-level associates to produce polished, sophisticated legal writing. Participants learn to draft effective introductions, create emphasis and balance within sentences, and edit efficiently. This workshop also emphasizes general writing skills, but sessions can be tailored to a particular practice area.
