Description

This four-part series addresses a persistent problem in legal writing:  converting the first draft of a brief into a polished, professional piece, worthy of submission to the court.  One of the most common complaints one hears from senior litigators concerns the poor quality of drafts that are submitted to them by junior attorneys.  This series attempts to address this complaint by sharing techniques used by professional editors and explaining how those techniques can be adapted to the task of polishing a brief.

 

The lectures are designed to be interactive, and include illustrative problems in editing that the attendees will be asked to solve.

 

This fourth lecture in the series offers advice in how to make final corrections to a draft the way a professional proofreader would.  The lesson focuses heavily upon correcting mistakes in word usage and spotting grammatical and typographical errors.  

 

Who should attend?     

 

This lecture will prove valuable to any lawyer who wishes to learn how to write more persuasive prose.  It is aimed especially at junior and mid-level litigation associates.

 

What you will receive:  

 
  • Comprehensive set of PowerPoint slides
  • Proofreading Exercise (clean and marked-up versions) (WORD documents)
