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 3, 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 Wednesday, June 3, for this full-day workshop. You'll come away with new skills, new strategies, and new confidence.

Sign up now - and spread the word!
