Every lawyer needs to write well. And, every lawyer can improve their writing skills. Don’t miss this opportunity to set yourself up for writing success.

Join us for a jam-packed 90 minutes of learning how to write more concisely, clearly, and powerfully for any audience.  Our instructor will be Becky Troth, former D.C. Pro Bono Center Executive Director, Sidley Pro Bono Counsel, and legal writing instructor.

Becky joined the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center in February 2017. Previously, she was pro bono counsel for Sidley Austin’s Washington, D.C., office, where she coordinated the firm’s pro bono activities for 10 years. Before joining Sidley, she was the legal director of the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty, taught legal writing and appellate advocacy at American University Washington College of Law, and served as a senior attorney in the Appellate Section of the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. Becky was counsel to U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno from 2000 to 2001.
