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…)

Join us for at the BBA for this full-day workshop and come away with new skills, new strategies, and new confidence.
