Description

Legal professionals must do more writing than ever before. But standard writing styles often clutter the prose, making the legal content unnecessarily heavy and difficult to follow. Learn how to write with clarity, lightness, and grace. Building on the principles highlighted in previous programs, these webinars show you how to invigorate your writing style so that it becomes bright and persuasive—writing that presents you and your firm with aplomb! The two 1.5-hour webinars include practical models, hands-on exercises, and explanatory critiques to help you understand how to fine-tune your legal writing style.

  • Avoid tiring your reader's eyes by becoming attuned to what they need
  • Fine-tune your punctuation and use it as a style tool
  • Watch grammar bugbears to keep your reader focused
  • Experiment with rhetorical devices as refined by the Greeks
  • Learn from the pros by "copying" your favourite authors
