Impact or Long-Winded?
Make your legal writing high impact and avoid the pitfalls of longwinded legalese. As an attorney, clear and persuasive legal prose is essential for success. On November 6, Columbus Bar presents a 3.0 hour CLE seminar geared toward applying plain language principles to the unique demands of legal writing.
“High Impact vs. Longwinded – Plain and Persuasive Legal Prose” is presented by Dr. Terri Mester, the director of Workplace Writing and full-time professor in Case Western Reserve University’s English department. She has conducted workshops in legal, business and technical writing since 1998. Her clients include several bar associations (state, city and federal), prominent law firms (Reed Smith; Bailey Cavalieri; Taft Stettenius & Hollister), CPA firms (Norman Jones Enlow, Lally Lally, Brockman Coats & Gedelian), and companies like Nationwide Insurance and Abbott Laboratories.
This seminar is designed for legal professionals who want to write with more efficiency and persuasion by concentrating on their readers and ridding their prose of distractions.
