Tuesday, January 1, 2008 - 01:00

The Los Angeles County Bar Association (LACBA) will present a CLE seminar titled Persuasive Legal Writing.

The program will take place on Wednesday, January 30 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the LACBA Conference Center, 281 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m.

In this seminar, 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.
