Event Types: 
CLE Programming
Date: 
Monday, June 26, 2017 - 9:00am

Don't worry. It's not a rehash of Legal Writing from law school. Rather, we'll take a look at some key "big picture" approaches to writing that many practitioners - whether litigators or transactional attorneys - may lose sight of. Similar to the ever-popular Minecraft videogame, we will create and build from the bottom up. You will learn the right building blocks and skills needed for writing persuasively, improving counterarguments, proofreading techniques and ways to avoid the ax. We also will talk about some specific techniques for improving your writing.

Seven New Things to Know if You Are Your Own Secretary

Event Types: 
CLE Programming
Date: 
Wednesday, July 19, 2017 - 12:00pm

Editing documents, mailing items and simply learning how to be an efficient admin are much more time consuming than they seem. Learn from someone who has done these the hard way, and learned how to save time, money and productivity using the latest tech (and a few old options as well).
