Knowing the law is essential—but so is being able to communicate about it. 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. 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.
Connecticut-based lawyers of any level of experience, and in any area of practice.
(Includes a light breakfast, lunch, electronic materials*, and parking in the public garage at 35 Bank St)
