Legal Writing: Editing and Proofreading Essentials

Learn the most effective and practical techniques to edit and proofread for legal professionals.

This topic is for any legal professional who wants to write better emails and who wants better communication skills with clients, co-workers, opposing counsel, and the courts. Email communication typically accounts for more than 25% of how we work in today's legal community and justice system. Learn how to improve your emails and communications by receiving instruction on the do's and don'ts. Proofreading our written communication is often over looked, but a poorly proofed document reflects poorly on the drafter, the legal team and the client. Many proofreading tips are included. This information also includes detailed instructions on how to prepare and to present a well drafted legal memorandum.
