Why take this workshop?

Most of us struggle to become top-notch legal writers. That's because most of us don't spend much time training ourselves to get better. Instead, we rely on practice alone. After all: How can we not get better with all the writing and reading we do?

But unless you actively work on improving your writing, you're just as likely to practice bad habits as good ones. Practice alone isn't enough. That's why so many experienced legal writers write so poorly. 

In this workshop we'll give you what you need to actually get better: Specific techniques used by the best lawyers in the world.

In particular, we'll take a journey through some of the most proven and powerful tools to write better sentences and become a better editor. Then you'll get to try your hand with each technique so doing it in your next writing project will be a snap.

Workshop Overview

One-Idea Sentences

Most legal writers pack so much into their sentences that their readers have to work hard to figure out what point they should be walking away with. Learn how to craft sentences that convey specific ideas. 

Powerful Paragraphs

Don't be like most legal writers and just plop a paragraph down randomly. Paragraphs are the single most powerful tool for distilling what matters for your readers. But you must build them with purpose. We will show you how. 

Transitions That Flow

If you can achieve true flow in your legal writing, your readers will get swept up in your points and actually want to keep reading. And the single best way to make your writing flow is through transitions. Learn simple tricks to transition better. 

Verbs That Burst

Verbs are the engines of your sentences. Not only will good verbs make your sentences easier to read, but if you choose the right verbs—you can actually target your reader's emotions and create concrete imagery. 

Editing Hacks

Editing is where the real writing magic happens. Forget just scanning your writing for typos. You will learn proven techniques for honing your prose to a point. Thousands of lawyers and law students have successfully used our editing tools, and you will too.
