CLE Courses

Advanced Legal Writing & Editing

Wednesday, June 18, 2014
01:00 AM ET

This mainstay LawProse seminar may well be the most heavily attended CLE seminar of all time—more than 115,000 lawyers, judges, law clerks, legal assistants, and others have attended since this popular course was first offered in 1991. And the coursebook—Garner’s best—has been fully revamped. Garner provides the keys for writing at a truly professional level. He shows you no-nonsense methods for making the most of your writing aptitude in letters, memos, briefs, and more.

The seminar covers essential skills:

  • Mastering the prerequisites to professional-grade writing
  • Creating a solid lead for every piece
  • Achieving a lucid train of thought
  • Concluding with power
  • Budgeting your time as a writer

Garner’s dynamic teaching style highlights dozens of other techniques that can make a tremendous difference. Most important, he shows what doesn’t work and why—then teaches participants how to shake those bad writing habits that judges universally detest.
