The Los Angeles County Bar Association (LACBA) this month is planning a CLE seminar titled Persuasive Legal Writing.

The program is scheduled for Wednesday, January 24 from 5:30 to 9:15 p.m. at the LACBA Conference Center, 281 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles.

In this seminar, noted appellate attorney Daniel U. Smith advocates brevity, simplicity and clarity - the opposite of what lawyers learn in law school. The course shows how to persuade a skeptical judge by creating headings, paragraphs and sentences that embody brevity, simplicity and clarity. The course offers key steps for easy drafting and effective editing.
