This Friday, February 3, at 2:00 p.m. ET/11:00 a.m. PT, Justia is hosting an all-new Justia Webinar exclusively for our Justia Connect members! David Kemp, adjunct professor at Rutgers Law School and the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, will discuss ways to sharpen your legal writing skills by looking at excerpts from some of our nation’s most renowned legal writers and exploring modern tools for improved writing.
What Should I Expect in the Next Justia Webinar?
When you attend the Write Like the Best Legal Writers, you will learn strategies designed to help you effectively hone your legal writing technique for greater impact and improved performance. Specifically, the presentation will cover five key techniques for improved legal writing:
- Writing for nonlawyers,
- Creating a story arc,
- Utilizing shorter sentences,
- Avoiding passive voice, and
- Reading the final draft.
In addition, attendees will explore modern tools that may help improve legal writing, such as Spellcheck, Grammarly, and the latest buzzworthy bot: ChatGPT.
