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 second lecture in the series offers advice in how to make the brief clearer, and therefore more persuasive. The eight techniques include methods for simplifying complex constructions, for using parallel constructions correctly, for presenting lists of information in a clear format and for replacing “sexist” language.

 

Who should attend?

This lecture will prove valuable to any lawyer who wishes to learn how to write clearer prose. It is aimed especially at junior and midlevel litigation associates.

Comprehensive set of PowerPoint slides
