Advanced Legal Writing Workshop

Class Unique: 27615

This 2-day course (5.75 hours each day) covers two broad legal-writing topics. Day one covers mechanics: common mistakes in word usage, grammar, and punctuation—and how to avoid and fix them—plus the most challenging advanced topics in the mechanics of legal writing. Key goals are to strengthen your writing credibility and raise your writing IQ. Day two covers broader concepts: concision, persuasion, organization, and revision, as well as some citation and transactional drafting. The course requires pre-class reading and quizzes and a final written project. Pass-fail.
