Power Writing for Lawyers

Power Writing for Lawyers

Seminar Overview

Outside a courtroom, the written word is a lawyer’s strongest form of communication. It’s how a lawyer says, “This is what my client and I stand for.” Even in the complex world of the law, you have to tell it to sell it--to clients, opposing counsel, their clients, and others who you must persuade through your written communication Whether it’s a letter, memo, brief, or petition, the key is to explain it so everyone gets it–and so that your position prevails.

The same goal applies within the firm too. Whether a concept, an action plan, a target, a reorganization, or a change in responsibilities, the same rules of persuasive, clear writing apply. It’s even more important when the subject is politically complex or even perilous--a firing or resignation, a complaint or criticism, a pitch for partnership, a plea for a help with a case run amok. All these and other facets of legal life demand insightful, expressive, compelling, reasoned and well-crafted writing.

The best lawyers tend to be the best communicators. The Power Writing for Lawyers seminar can make every lawyer a better communicator.
