Course #: ENPA0004R


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 first of four lectures focuses upon “big picture” issues that often do not receive any attention at all in the editing process. Techniques for spotting formatting inconsistencies, improving argument headings, eliminating “legalese” and drastically reducing the word count are among the topics covered.


Who should attend?

This lecture will prove valuable to any litigator, especially junior and mid-level litigation associates.
