    An experienced panel of Connecticut lawyers will discuss the intersection of professionalism, ethics, and technology. Why? Technology touches everything from legal accounting and advertising to document management and digital privacy. While “tech competence” is required in a plurality of US jurisdictions, including Connecticut, the term’s exact definition is anything but an ever-fixed mark. For this reason, we are pleased to host a panel discussion with members of the Standing Committee on Professional Ethics, the Statewide Grievance Committee, Statewide Bar Counsel, practitioners in the areas of digital privacy and legal ethics, and members of the local judiciary.

    More Effective Writing Makes More Effective Lawyers (EDU211105)
    Webinar
    Friday, Nov 5 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM (Eastern Daylight Time)

    Knowing the law is essential—but so is being able to communicate about it. Join writing coach and former attorney Rick Horowitz for this lively and practical seminar that will reintroduce you to your legal-writing toolbox, including a few tools you didn't know were in there. This class explores the fundamentals (and the critical details) of creating clear, well-organized, persuasive legal documents. Briefs, memos, client letters, and even daily correspondence benefit from your deeper understanding of what goes into successful writing, so we’ll examine good and not-so-good writing to see what worked, what didn't, and why. We’ll also take a fresh look at some of the assumptions and habits that often lead lawyers down less-than-productive writing paths.
