More Effective Writing Makes More Effective Lawyers (11/22) *In-Person Only at D.C. Bar*

November 22, 2019
Credits: 6.0 Credit Hours (7.0 Skills Credit Hours for New York)
Description: Use the Washington Nationals' recent amazing triumph as inspiration, and take your legal-writing skills to the next level, too. Here’s your chance, on Friday, November 22nd, at the DC Bar.
Join writing coach and former attorney Rick Horowitz for “More Effective Writing Makes More Effective Lawyers,” 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 explore 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, so we’ll examine good and not-so-good writing to see what worked, what didn't, and why.
You'll come away with new skills, new strategies, and new confidence.
Knowing the law is essential – but so is being able to communicate about it. Isn’t it time you were tops in your league?
Class is limited to 30 registrants.
