The ability to convey meaning through the written word is essential to a lawyer’s primary objective: making the reader - whether it’s a judge, opposing counsel or colleague - understand your position (and ideally adopt it) by capturing and holding their attention.

In this webinar, lawyer and law professor Peter Sankoff shares over 20 years of writing and editing experience to help any lawyer take their writing to the next level.

Retaining this assistance, however, means that lawyers assume important ethical and legal responsibilities for how the investigation is handled...Read More
