Litigation Skills Series: Intensive Legal Writing Workshop
SOLD OUT! WAITLIST AVAILABLE
No matter where you practice, the ability to convey your message in clear, concise, and persuasive terms can be the key to success. Basics such as sentence structure, word choice, and word placement all affect the structure of your argument and the impact of your writing. The art of legal writing can only be learned through repetition, practice, and feedback. This session will give you the opportunity to discuss an actual piece of writing you submit for review and get direct feedback on the finer points of persuasive legal writing.
Join us on Thursday, February 24, from 12:00-1:30 pm ET via Zoom for a continuation of our Litigation Skills Series: Legal Writing. In this Intensive Legal Writing Workshop, you will receive one-on-one feedback on your piece, which will include a redline review and a discussion of how to make your writing more effective.
This course is $45 for Washington Council of Lawyers members (join) and $75 for non-members. Scholarships are available thanks to the generosity of the D.C. Bar Foundation. Reach out to Christina Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in applying for a scholarship.
This session is limited to 16 participants. You will be matched with a reviewer and given instructions via email about how to submit your writing sample on February 11.
Don’t miss this opportunity to talk with some of the best legal writers in our community about how to make your arguments more effective.
