Legal-writing seminars: random thoughts

What is it like to teach legal-writing seminars to lawyers?

  • Some will be insecure about writing and will be hanging on every word.
  • Some will be overconfident about writing and will be dismissive of your presentation.
  • Some will be doing something else instead of listening.
  • Inevitably, someone in the audience will want you to explain the difference between “that” and “which.”

Despite all this, legal writing is a dry subject, so you have to make it entertaining. It's hard.
