It’s estimated that over 90% of a lawyer’s working life is spent writing or reviewing writing (Bryan Garner, Chief Editor of Black’s Law Dictionary). Therefore, wouldn’t it make sense to develop your writing skills? Especially if you think that a lot of that legal writing is really trying to persuade someone to do something:
- to persuade a client to work with your law firm,
- to persuade a judge to accept your argument over others, or
- to persuade an opponent to agree to your conditions.
What if there was a way to briefly summarize all the effective writing strategies that make the above possible?
At the same time, what if there was a way to identify and fix all the mistakes that stop the above from happening?
What if there was a way to use your opponents writing mistakes against them?
There is and there are.
The legal writing course I have developed, developed on the increasingly common ‘plain language’ principles favoured by jurisdictions all around the world, allow you to develop your writing skills to benefit:
- you as a legal practitioner,
- your law firm, and
- your clients.
My course will help native and non-native English writers. This is not a ‘normal’ legal English course. I’m not going to teach you legal vocabulary. I’m not going to test your legal knowledge. The aim of this course is to help you develop clear, communicative, focused and at times deadly English legal writing skills.
You need a minimum of B2 English skills based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) for this course.
