Legal Writing Basics: Three Key Skills
This workshop addresses the three skills needed to achieve good legal writing skills in English. Participants begin by learning a technique for striking the right tone in legal correspondence. They then take part in a usage competition, with sentences from practice that test their ability to spot the most common legal vocabulary, grammar, and punctuation errors – followed by practical tips on how to avoid/correct them. Finally, participants learn how to cut their way to better style. Using samples from practice, they learn how to spot “red flags” in their writing and cut surplus words and syllables to achieve a lean style.
