Knowing the law is essential – but so is being able to communicate about it. Join writing coach and former attorney Rick Horowitz for a lively and practical writing workshop that will reintroduce you to your legal-writing toolbox, including a few tools you didn’t know were in there.

“More Effective Writing, for More Effective Lawyers” will explore the fundamentals (and the critical details) of creating clear, well-organized, persuasive legal documents. Briefs, memos, client letters, even daily correspondence – they’ll all benefit from your deeper understanding of what goes into successful writing. Writing that opens and closes strongly, flows logically, presents pertinent information to your target audience understandably, and uses the right words and the right tone for this task, this time.

You’ll examine good and not-so-good writing to see what worked, what didn’t, and why. You’ll get advice for steering clear of the grammar and usage potholes that can undermine your credibility. You’ll even learn tips for avoiding the dreaded “legalese” while still getting the job done! (There’s a reason people tell lawyer jokes…)

Lively and useful discussions. Plenty of helpful writing, organizing, and editing tips for – and from – lawyers with a wide range of writing experience. Practical guidance – and even moral support – for navigating the shoals of intra-office writing demands. (Or, “Why Are They Messing With My Stuff, and How Should I Handle It?”)

That’s just some of what you can expect from “More Effective Writing Makes More Effective Lawyers,” my all-day workshop, offered monthly as part of the DC Bar's highly regarded Continuing Legal Education program.

I’ll be back on March 23, and again on April 20. Seating is limited, so sign up now. And tell your lawyer friends! (Everybody has lawyer friends, right?)
