A pre-recorded streaming video replay of the September 2011 live seminar, Beyond Legal Writing 101.

Topics covered include:

  • Produce better first drafts
  • Revise drafts more quickly
  • Effectively organize facts and legal analysis
  • Create focused, coherent paragraphs
  • Write clear sentences containing complex information

Start improving your writing immediately. Sign up today! Clients, colleagues, and judges can assess an attorney's writing ability after reading only the first page or two of a pleading, letter, or contract. Do your legal writing skills measure up? If not, this seminar will take you beyond the Legal Writing 101 course you took in law school, and will increase your skills as a legal writer and editor.

Learn basic principles you can use repeatedly. Unlike other legal writing programs, this program will go beyond the usual advice about writing short sentences and avoiding jargon. Instead, the program focuses on easy-to-follow principles of communication that are the basis for clear and persuasive legal writing.

You'll also learn how to teach others to improve their drafts, so you won't have to spend as much time rewriting their work. Taught by Timothy P. Terrell, professor of law at Emory University School of Law, Atlanta, the program will feature specially prepared hands-on editing exercises throughout the day. You'll be able to apply new writing and editing techniques right away. Don't miss this opportunity to learn and benefit from Terrell's skill in teaching legal writing and editing.
