Superior Legal Writing: The Point-First Approach

The greatest skill any lawyer can possess is the ability to write clearly, concisely, and convincingly. Good writing skills will not only improve the results you obtain, but will also enhance your reputation with judges, lawyers, and clients. The point-first approach to writing puts context before details, emphasizing the need for clarity and concision in legal memos and factums.

In this entertaining, highly practical webinar, William Bernhardt, lawyer and New York Times bestselling author of more than fifty books, tells lawyers what they need to know to succeed on the printed page, based upon personal experience, conversations with judges and lawyers, and a lifetime of writing. Bernhardt uses powerful onscreen “before and after” examples to demonstrate how attention to language and the application of point-first writing and other smart writing principles can improve any lawyer’s written work. Implementing even just one or two suggestions from Bernhardt’s proven approach will immediately elevate your writing.
