Knowing the law is essential - but so is being able to communicate about it. Join writing coach and former attorney Rick Horowitz at the Louisville Bar Association on Wednesday, June 6, for a lively and practical session that will reintroduce you to your legal-writing toolbox, including a few tools you didn't know were in there.

This class explores the fundamentals (and the critical details) of creating clear, well-organized, persuasive legal documents. Briefs, memos, client letters, even daily correspondence benefit from your deeper understanding of what goes into successful writing, so we’ll examine good and not-so-good writing to see what worked, what didn't, and why:

  • What should you include, and what can you leave out?
  • What’s the most effective structure for this document, and this audience?
  • Should you use an outline? Are there better options?
  • What has to happen between “first draft” and “Send”?
  • How can you steer clear of those grammar and usage potholes that undermine your credibility?
  • How do you survive the in-house editing process?
  • And do you really need all that “legalese”? (There’s a reason people tell lawyer jokes...)

Join us at LBA on Thursday, June 6, for this full-day workshop. You'll come away with new skills, new strategies, and new confidence. Sign up now - and spread the word!

“Great, funny presenter.”

“Loved the use of technology and videos.”

“Great course! Learned so much, very practical tips, and hope to implement in my practice.”

“Probably the best legal seminar I have attended (and in 35 years of practice, I have attended quite a few.) Terrific presentation, materials, and interaction with students.”

Intrigued? That’s the idea! You’ll come away with new skills, new strategies, and new confidence. So register now, and get ready to become a more effective writer – and a more effective lawyer.
